  • The projected path of Hurricane Hector as of 5 p.m. Sunday

Swells kicked up by Hector are expected to reach shores of the Big Island and Maui late Tuesday, "likely becoming large and risky by late tonight and Wednesday", the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu said.

Tropical Storm John has strengthened into a hurricane in the Pacific off Mexico's western coast, though forecasters say it poses no immediate threat to land.

Big Island officials are taking precautions in advance of the storm nearing the state.

Hurricane Hector remains a category four storm as it slowly moves west towards the south of Hawaii.

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

"There is a reasonable chance that Hector will survive to cross the International Date Line early next week", said AccuWeather meteorologist Steve Travis. It was centered about 1,255 miles (2,020 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja.

Still, the National Hurricane Center issued a tropical storm watch Monday for parts of the Big Island, including Hawaii County, where Kilauea Volcano has destroyed more than 700 structures in three months. It will not affect any land areas. All these conditions tend to be associated with quieter Atlantic hurricane season.

The island will see a major impact from Hector, as hurricane force winds extend up to 40 miles from the center and tropical storm force winds 115 miles. A trough is then forecast to take Debby on a northeasterly track afterward, but fall apart afterward.
