Hawaii rarely has to deal with a hurricane. But right now, it's preparing for two of them. There's Hurricane Iselle, which looks like it will hit the big island Thursday night. Then there's the less-threatening Hurricane Julio, due a few days later. A National Weather Service forecaster have his prediction of what Hawaiians should expect to see. "As far as storm surge goes where the ocean, the wind blows the ocean onto the land, for eastern-facing portions of the islands and even portions of, or Big Island, maybe one to two feet of storm surge is what we're looking at right now," says Mike Canton of the National Weather Service. So that's, we're seeing high tides that are fairly high for this time of year, we call them a spring tide. So there could be some potential issues when the storm comes ashore for prone areas near the shore, maybe some water getting in. Especially for those east-facing areas of the islands." Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie has signed an emergency proclamation. It gives the government access to the state's disaster funds.
