Hurricane Hector to skirt south of Hawaii as it weakens

Hurricane Hector

Hector is expected to pass within 100 to 150 miles south of the Big Island on Wednesday.

The National Weather Service (NHC) has said Hurricane Hector will brush the Big Island on Wednesday.

Hurricane Hector has maximum sustained winds of 130 miles per hour (215 kph) with stronger gusts possible. 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. Slight weakening is forecast during the next couple of days.

An uptick in squalls, locally heavy rain, brief gusty winds, heavy seas and surf may occur on the islands through the latter part of the week, AccuWeather reported.

Interests on Johnston Island should monitor the progress of Hector.

Officials are taking precautions in advance of the storm nearing the state.

Surf along east facing shores is already building and will peak later today and tonight, at 12-15 feet for the Big Island and 6-10 feet for Maui County. Hector's strongest winds are confined to about 40 miles from the eye and are not expected to affect the island.

CPHC said "Swells generated by Hector will likely produce large and risky surf along southeast and east facing shores of the Big Island today".

"Hector is expected to pass far enough to the south so that no important wind issues are expected to impact the Big Island", AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski said.

Swells generated by Hector will bring large and risky surf to portions of the main Hawaiian islands through tonight.
