    Hawaii bracing for a double punch

    Iselle which is a large storm with an eye is projected to make landfall with the Big Island Thursday afternoon Hi. time. Julio another large tropical storm is heading for the island chain right behind Iselle. Looks like we will have flooding in low areas as the first will soak the ground & swell the rivers if Julio hits too double the trouble.

    Julio just moved up to a hurricane 2. I better get some more water and food in the morning. With storms like this, chances are that electricity will be out. Let's hope for the best. We have so many homeless people living on the beaches out here, I hope they all get to the shelters.

    Thinking about the islands. Two storms is a tough one.

    A friend of mine was just hired by a Cruise Co. His first deployment was Hawai. The ship is there now.

    The thought of sitting on a ship riding out a hurricane scares the crap out of me.

    Be safe Stefan. We got lucky today and dodged a bullet with typhoon #11.
