Hurricane Hector to skirt south of Hawaii as it weakens

Map of Central Pacific region

Emergency Management officials are still warning Hawaii Island residents to be aware of possible high wind, flooding rain, and high surf.

As expected, Hector will have little impact on Hawaii as it passes the island chain to the south over the next 24 hours.

Hurricane Hector has maximum sustained winds of 130 miles per hour (215 kph) with stronger gusts possible.

The National Weather Service says the system will continue to weaken in the coming days as it moves westward. Hurricane-force winds extend about 30 miles (45 kilometers) from Hector's center and tropical storm-force winds can reach up to 90 miles (150 kilometres) from the eye outwards.

On the five-point Saffir-Simpson scale, a Category Five storm is the most risky, with winds exceeding 156 miles per hour (251 kph).

Hector is expected to pass approximately 165 miles south on Wednesday. Unsafe rip currents will also be possible near the Big Island and Maui. No coastal watches are warnings were issued, but forecasters said a tropical storm watch may be issued for Johnston Island.

"There will also be an increase in surf over the rest of the Hawaiian Islands through Friday".
