Posted August 7th, 2014 @ 8:58am by KFBK News

Hawaii is bracing itself for two hurricanes, with the first expected to hit later today.

Tom Evans with the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu says Hurricane Iselle is expected to hit first.

"Hurricane Iselle is expected to make landfall, and will start impacting the big island later on this afternoon. And then, going across the rest of the island chain tonight and Friday," Evans said. 

Evans says Iselle is expected to hit at low, Category One intensity and will weaken as it passes through the islands.  

Following up Iselle, Hurricane Julio could hit part of Hawaii on Sunday night.
