Hurricane Hector is located about 1,360 miles from South Point, located on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Hector's winds dropped to 125 mph from 130 mph, the diving line between Categories 3 and 4, early Sunday as it moved westward at 12 mph Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said in an advisory. Depending on its ultimate track, the storm could bring thunderstorms, gusty winds and increased surf to parts of the island and could also cause unsafe rip currents off the east- and south-facing beaches. Fluctuations in strength are likely during the next few days. According to NHC forecasters, by 48 hours, the hurricane is "predicted to encounter some drier mid-level air which is forecast to cause gradual weakening after that time".

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km).

One man detonated explosives while about 60 worshippers were praying, a witness said, while the other man reportedly opened fire. Local resident Sayed Naimatullah said he could hear the blasts from inside his home and rushed to the mosque.

The center of the storm was located about 1,360 miles east of South Point, Hawaii, as of the NHC's 2 a.m. PDT update. Hector is expected to weaken over cooler water before its center passes within 200 miles of the Big Island later this week, according to AccuWeather, though the island's southern tip is included in the NHC's five-day storm forecast cone.

Hawaii's Big Island already is dealing with another natural disaster - the eruption of Kilauea Volcano in the southeast. "Hector is our first hurricane this year". The United States Geological Survey said Saturday that the volcano is still sending large amounts of lava into the sea.

While the latest eruptions started in May, the volcano has spewed lava since the 1980s, becoming a major tourist destination even as it threatened nearby residents. One man was injured in the weeks after the eruption began, and another 23 people were hurt July 16 when lava entering the ocean exploded onto a tour boat.
