The U.S. Geological Survey reports a magnitude 4.3 earthquake has rattled Hawaii's Big Island, as two hurricanes rumbled toward the islands.

The temblor struck on the north tip of the island, about 7 miles from Waimea at 6:24 a.m. local time.

Hurricane Iselle was on course to hit the Big Island Thursday night, and was being tailed by Hurricane Julio, which strengthened early Thursday into a Category 2 storm.
