Hawaii braces for hurricanes: ‘Here they come’

Associated Press | Newseum

Hawaii is about to get its first hurricane in more than 20 years, Jennifer Sinco Kelleher and Audrey McAvoy reported Thursday for the Associated Press.

Hurricane Iselle was expected to arrive on the Big Island on Thursday evening, bringing heavy rains, winds gusting up to 85 mph and flooding in some areas. Weather officials changed their outlook on the system Wednesday after seeing it get a little stronger, giving it enough oomph to stay a hurricane as it reaches landfall.
