HONOLULU — Residents and tourists in Hawaii are bracing for two major storms swirling toward the island chain. Hurricane Iselle is expected to hit the Big Island late Thursday evening or early Friday morning, canceling flights and shaking up the final days of campaigns before the state's primary election. Hurricane Julio is following in the Pacific, having strengthened into a Category 3 storm but forecast to pass just north of the islands sometime Sunday morning.
