Tropical Storm Iselle hit the Big Island on Thursday night and Friday, bringing high waves, fallen trees and empty streets as people hunkered down to wait things out. The impact was less severe in Maui, and Oahu has escaped mostly unscathed so far.
Meanwhile, Hurricane Julio is expected to arrive late Sunday or early Monday, likely having weakened to a tropical storm.
