(NBC News) Hawaii is bracing for a one-two punch from two hurricanes currently churning in the Pacific.

Residents are lining up at gas stations and flooding grocery stores. 

Hurricane Iselle, the first storm, is expected to make landfall late Thursday night. Julio, the second storm, could strike Sunday.

It's rare enough to have two storms so close together, but especially rare for Hawaii which hasn't had a hurricane hit since 1992 and has had only eight named storms since the 1950s.
