The hurricane, which was upgraded to a Category 4 storm late Sunday night by the National Hurricane Center (NHC), is carrying sustained winds of up to 140 miles per hour, with hurricane force winds extending 30 miles from its center. It was expected to gain strength before weakening and bypassing Hawaii to the south by about 150 miles.
Hector is expected to continue moving west and have a slight increase in speed over the next couple of days.
A powerful hurricane is on course to collide with an erupting volcano on Hawaii's Big Island within days, forecasters have said.
Hurricane Hector is now 1,130 miles southeast of Big Island and moving west, according to the NHC's latest advisory.
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. Though it's not certain to make landfall, the NHC's cone of uncertainty shows the eye of the storm could hit the island's southernmost point.
Even though the hurricane should hopefully pass just south of Hawaii, state officials are warning residents to exercise caution.
