As Tropical Storm Iselle made landfall Friday, Hawaiians also bracing for the effects of Hurricane Julio.
A former Wichitan now living in Hawaii says dealing with tornadoes has helped her stay calm during this storm.
KAKE News Skyped with Krisanda Rongey this afternoon about the atmosphere in Hawaii. She said, "it has been raining the winds are definitely stronger than normal especially for our part of the island we live closer to Pearl Harbor."
Rongey said it seems relatively calm before this storm. She says most people are staying off the streets and in their homes. "Everyone here seems pretty cool, calm, collected. There haven't been any problems that I've seen. The shelves at the stores are definitely bare. Everyone was stocking up at the same time, lots of lines."
The good news for those in Hawaii, Hurricane Julio has been downgraded to a category 2 storm and is predicted to miss the Hawaiian islands by about 200 miles.
