HONOLULU (Worthy News)– Hawaii residents stocked up on essentials Tuesday and prepared for nature's onslaught as a double-barreled threat of hurricane and tropical storm takes aim at the islands, the USA Today reported.
"We're all dusting off our hurricane plans and securing the facility, loose objects, and working through what we need to do, just in case," says Scott Pawlowski, the National Park Service's chief of cultural and natural resources at the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument at Pearl Harbor.
Weather forecasters said the first storm, Hurricane Iselle, was expected to weaken but was continuing on its track to bring heavy rains, high surf and winds by Thursday, with landfall likely Friday. The National Weather Service issued a tropical storm watch for the island of Hawaii and a flash flood watch for all of the islands of the state. — Source
