Double whammy headed to Hawaii

The state of Hawaii continues to prepare for hurricanes. That's not a typo, two hurricanes are making way for the Aloha state sending islanders scrambling for supplies.
Hurricane Iselle is forecast to make landfall along the eastern fringe of the island chain by the middle of tomorrow with winds near 74mph that's just barely category one strength.
The people of Hawaii are more familiar with deadly volcanic eruptions and the threat of killer tsunamis than they are hurricanes but that is quickly changing with another storm right on the heels of the first. Hawaii has not been hit by a hurricane since Iniki back in 1992.
Hurricane Julio is farther out to sea but still forecast to head northwest near Hawaii with a potential landfall Sunday as a tropical storm.
