Hurricane Hector: Category 4 storm heads toward Hawaii, forecast, path, track today

Hurricane Hector: Category 4 storm heads toward Hawaii, forecast, path, track today

Scientists say a helicopter overflight on Monday confirms a significant reduction in lava output from a fissure in a Big Island community where new volcanic cracks first opened on May 3. On Friday, state officials warned residents and visitors to take precautions in case Hector gets closer to the island chain.

Hurricane Hector gained in strength overnight as it continues its march westward across the Central Pacific.

Forecasters note that hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles.

It was centered about 930 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii, and was moving west at about 15 mph.

Hawaii Mayor Harry Kim said the area was preparing for Hector's arrival, with a briefing held Sunday at the Civil Defense Agency's Emergency Operations Center. Some fluctuations in intensity are expected tonight and Monday. "It is still too soon to tell what effects this hurricane will have (if any) on the Hawaii islands".

115 injured in clashes as Bangla teen protests turn violent
Dhaka remained largely cut off from the rest of Bangladesh as buses continued to stop plying from other parts of the country. Recent months have also seen mass protests against a decades-old system of discriminatory civil service recruitment.

Hurricane Hector's current trajectory puts the hurricane on a virtual collision course with Kilauea on the southern part of the island. We introduced some elevated precipitation chances over the eastern slopes of the Big Island from Wednesday into Thursday as deep tropical moisture will likely move up the slopes of Maunakea and Maunaloa producing enhanced rainfall activity.

However, it was unclear whether the hurricane would hit or just brush by the southern edge of the Big Island, a meteorologist at the National Service's Weather Prediction Centre in College Park Maryland.

"We continue 24-hour operation to monitor the eruption in the Lower East Rift Zone and the hurricane", Kim's office said in a statement, referring to both the storm and the erupting Kilauea volcano.

Hurricane Hector is on track to hit the Big Island of Hawaii according to CNN.
