Hawaii residents prepare for Hurricane Iselle

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 6, 2014

Hawaii is bracing for tropical storm Iselle.

Store supplies are flying off shelves faster than workers can restock them.

A Costco ran out of bottled water and toilet paper Tuesday. Outside the store at the gas station, a line of cars stretched way back.

Despite the craziness, Honolulu residents braved the long lines just to be prepared.

Much of Hawaii is under either a tropical storm watch or warning. Hurricane Iselle weakened slightly overnight. Its eye was about 925 miles from Honolulu Wednesday morning.
