Hurricane Hector strengthens to Category 4 storm

Hurricane Hector strengthens to Category 4 storm

The storm is located about 1,360 miles east of South Point, Hawaii, located on the Big Island.

It is moving to the west at about 14 miles per hour. "It is still too soon to tell what effects this hurricane will have (if any) on the Hawaii islands".

Hector is forecast to cross into the central Pacific basin by Sunday night or early Monday.

Hurricane-force winds expected up to 30 miles from the center of the storm, while tropical storm-force winds reach up to 105 miles from the center.

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 130 miles per hour and was moving west at 14 miles per hour.

"The track of the hurricane still has the center passing well south of the main Hawaiian island at this time", Brink said Sunday morning".

It was uncertain if it would hit or just brush by the southern edge of the Big Island, said a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Centre in College Park Maryland.

Forecasters also said Hector is expected to maintain major hurricane strength for the next two to three days, CBS Honolulu affiliate KGMB reports.

The system is expected to cross into the Central Pacific tonight or early Monday, and cross through the Hawaiʻi region around Wednesday. "We want to remind the public we are in the middle of the hurricane season and we urge people to take the weekend to prepare their homes and families for impacts that could be felt statewide", Tom Travis, Hawaii's Administrator of Emergency Management, said in a news release. Lava from the volcano has destroyed more than 700 structures, including residences, since eruptions began in May.

At this far distance, it can still change directions and avoid the Big Island of Hawaii altogether, but the high speeds of a hurricane combined with the erupting Kilauea volcano is a concern.
