hurricane-iselle-coming-hawaiiAs Hurricane Iselle bears down on Hawaii this Thursday and Friday, please be careful.  Iselle is supposed to weaken to a tropical storm before reaching the Big Island on Thursday, but it will still bring high-winds and flooding conditions across the state.

Tropical Storm Julio is still expected to reach hurricane level but it is still about 5 days from making Hawaii landfall.

As we prepare for Iselle and Julio, we are sticking to our go-to news outlet at KHON2.

Here are a couple of great reports that they are currently carrying in helping and warning people to prepare for both storms.
