Double Trouble Headed to Hawaii … and
In what’s being hailed a meteorological first, two back-to-back hurricanes are marching toward Hawaii, both of them threatening torrential rains and rip-roaring winds this week. The closer of the two, hurricane Madeline, could break a
second as the first hurricane to strike the Big Island since bookkeeping began in 1949.
Hurricanes are rare in Hawaii [. . . ] “Usually the waters [along this storm track] are on the edge of what’s needed to support hurricanes,” . . .“Now, they’re just warm enough, and it’s making a big difference.”

Four separate tropical systems are taking aim on western Florida, the Outer Banks and Hawaii this week.
Two tropical depressions will bring rain and churning seas to the East and Gulf Coasts while two hurricanes approach Hawaii.
Both tropical depressions could become tropical storms before reaching land within the next couple of days. A tropical depression becomes a tropical storm when wind speeds reach 39 mph. Storms become hurricanes at 74 mph.
