 KAUAI HILTON RECEIVES LIMITED DAMAGE
 FROM THE EFFECTS OF HURRICANE INIKI
 KAUAI, Hawaii, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kauai Hilton sustained minimal damage from the effects of Hurricane Iniki, Sept. 11, 1992.
 At the Kauai Hilton, the 350-room structure was intact. General Manager Peter H. Schall of the Hilton Hawaiian Village on Waikiki Beach yesterday boarded a helicopter from Honolulu to the Kauai Hilton. "Amazingly, the Kauai Hilton was fortunate to have weathered the storm," said Schall. He said there was no damage to the hotel structure except for scattered tiles blown off from the rooftop. The landscaped gardens were damaged by severe winds and waters. The hotel's volcanic rock swimming pool, however, was not damaged.
 The approximately 600 guests reported that they were grateful for the immediate action on behalf of the Kauai Hilton employees who guided them to a shelter at Kauai Community College.
 The island of Kauai is temporarily out of power and water. Communication with the island has been limited. All commercial airline flights into Kauai have been canceled. The military is providing Kauai with potable water.
 The Kauai Hilton is undergoing clean-up efforts at the resort which is temporarily closed until the island is restored with power, water and full communication capabilities.
 Kauai Hilton guests are scheduled to be airlifted Monday, Sept. 14, 1992 from the Kauai to Honolulu International Airport. The Hilton Hawaiian Village along with the Hawaii Visitors Bureau and the Hawaii Hotel Association have set up a joint information center to assist visitors. A group of Hilton Hawaiian Village employees will be located at the information center to assist visitors with hotel accommodations as well as provide guests with hot meals at the airport.
 The beachfront Kauai Hilton is located in the Hanamaulu district of the "Garden Island" of Kauai, just four miles away from Lihue Airport. The resort is located on 25 acres of lushly landscaped grounds with exotic birds, swans and freshwater fish ponds, and offers golf, tennis, restaurants, a children's program and a "Superpool."
 On Oahu, the Hilton Hawaiian Village on Waikiki Beach and the Turtle Bay Hilton Golf & Tennis Resort remain open and are both fully operational following Hurricane Iniki.
