Mountainous volcanoes and a massive ocean could double team to ease the impact of two major storms roaring toward Hawaii. Hurricane Iselle is scheduled to tear into the islands Thursday and Friday. On it’s heels, Tropical Storm Julio is setting up as a Sunday-Monday event, National Weather Service meteorologist Anthony Reynes said Wednesday. Reynes said, “If that happens it will be something the state of Hawaii has never seen before.” But Reynes also said storms forming in the eastern Pacific generally run out of gas before they make it to the islands. Iselle has been a furious storm, but even Iselle is struggling to maintain it strength and is expected to reach the islands as a low-level hurricane or a tropical storm. And when it arrives, the terrain of the Big Island, Hawaii’s largest and most eastern island, could help break the storm up further with its miles-high volcanoes.
