In the very early hours of Feb. 28, 2004 a tornado ripped through South Kona in the Milolii Mauka subdivision. A swath of destruction left trees and utility poles down, lifted one home off its foundation moving it 15 feet with the owner and her pets inside. Power was finally restored late Sunday. Here’s some video I shot of the house damaged the worst by the tornado, there were other homes damaged in the subdivision.
