Hawaii, better known as the Aloha State, is about to be battered by two hurricanes, Hurricane Julio and hurricane Iselle, in a row. When it rains, it pours!

Hawaii’s very first major hurricanes in more than two decades have arrived in its full force. Hurricane Iselle hit the coastline today and there is more bad news to come yet. 

Another hurricane named Julio is headed in the wake of the current one. Stores sold mineral water and foodstuff as well as other necessary emergency supplies like hotcakes as the preparations for the twin hurricanes got underway. 

The Category 1 storm is about to come and hit the shores of the island state tonight. According to the local meteorology department, it is a high level hurricane even by Hawaiian standards. 

Among the ravages of Nature that will be taking place is rainfall amounting to 5 to 8 inches and winds that will howl at 80m mph. Even floods lay in the future. 

Ultimately by the time Hurricane Iselle will reach its peak point, Hurricane Julio will arrive on its heels. Honolulu will face the full onslaught of the first before the ensuing of the second. 

Oahu, Kauai and Maui were also among the pressure areas that would have to bear the brunt of the hurricanes. The whole island was put on high alert and safety procedures were being followed by every single citizen. 

As for the second hurricane, it will enter Hawaiian airspace on Sunday night. Hurricane Julio has a Category 2 value. Up until now, Hawaii has been hit a total of three times by storms and hurricanes of this kind. 

The last time was 1992 and it was termed Hurricane Iniki. The only sort of people who were actually happy at this disturbance in weather conditions were the surfer dudes and dudettes. 

They would be surfing away to their heart’s content so they had nothing to worry about the cyclone’s waves and rising surf. Other hurricanes such as the deadly Hurricane Katrina that hit the United States during George W. Bush’s tenure as president were much more potent in the damage they caused.
