People across Hawaii are getting ready for an unusual one-two punch from storms that are headed to the islands.

The National Weather Service says two storms are headed for Hawaii later this week that could be an effect of a developing El Nino pattern.

Officials say Hurricane Iselle could hit Hawaii by Friday and Hurricane Julio could hit two or three days later.

Hawaii County Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira says news of a second storm has heightened the urgency to prepare.

A grocery store in the coastal Oahu community of Waianae opened 15 minutes early Tuesday because people were already lining up to buy supplies.

Tamura's Supermarket General Manager Charlie Gustafson says items such as bottled water, cans of Spam and Vienna Sausage are flying off the shelves.
