HONOLULU (AP) -- More airlines are canceling flights as a hurricane pushed closer to Hawaii and a second major tropical storm loomed behind it. It's the first hurricane in 22 year to take aim at the state.

American Airlines and US Airways have canceled all flights leaving or going to the Big Island and Maui after 6 p.m. HST Thursday. They expect flights to resume at noon HST Friday.

Hawaiian Airlines has halted Thursday evening interisland flights in Hilo, Kona and Maui. It also moved its Maui-Los Angeles flight up by nearly five hours.

Commuter airline Island Air said earlier Thursday it was canceling some afternoon flights between the islands and shutting down all operations Friday.

The Hawaii Tourism Authority says United Airlines also canceled flights, but the carrier couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
