At 5 a.m. this morning, Hector was about 540 miles east-southeast of Hilo, packing maximum sustained winds of 130 miles an hour with higher gusts and moving west at 16 mph.

One of two storms off Mexico's Pacific coast strengthened into a hurricane Monday afternoon, while forecasters said the other was no longer expected to gain hurricane strength and neither posed an immediate threat to land.

Meteorologist Melissa Dye says the southern half of the island should brace for winds of 35 miles per hour (56.3 kph) or higher.

John was expected to strengthen rapidly and become a major hurricane by late Tuesday.

The conditions needed to stir up hurricanes are lacking, noted Phil Klotzbach and Michael Bell of Colorado State University's Tropical Meteorology Project.

Subtropical storm Debby formed Tuesday, becoming the fourth named storm of hurricane season.

Ileana was closer to shore, centered about 155 miles (245 kilometers) south-southeast of Manzanillo.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts. It was likely to bring rain to the southern peninsula, as well as heavy surf. The tropical-storm-force winds associated with Debby are well removed from the center as indicated by a recent satellite view and are occurring within a cyclonically curved band of moderate convection.

An erupting Hawaii volcano is causing fewer earthquakes, and there's less lava coming out of an eruption site in a neighborhood just as the Big Island braces for an approaching hurricane.

The storm, which has been monitored for the last few days, was located 1160 miles west of the Azores in the northern Atlantic Ocean, according to the 11 am advisory from the NHC.
