  • Hurricane Hector

The center of the Category 3 storm was about 325 miles south of Honolulu and 730 miles east of Johnston Island. The latest advisory from the Pacific Hurricane Center clocked the storm moving west at 16 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 125 miles per hour.

On the five-point Saffir-Simpson scale, a Category Five storm is the most risky, with winds exceeding 156 miles per hour (251 kph).

Hawaii County officials declared a precautionary state of emergency ahead of the storm. Category Four strength was the maximum attained by Hurricane Harvey, which devastated parts of Texas and Louisiana in 2005.

Hurricane Hector moved south of Hawaii's Big Island Thursday, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center said, but its progress on Johnston Island is being watched. Hector's strongest winds are confined to about 40 miles from the eye and are not expected to affect the island. Forecasters say some weakening is expected over the next couple of days, and large surf is expected today along southeast and east facing shores of the Big Island and east facing shores of Maui.

A tropical storm warning was in place Wednesday for the Big Island with gusty winds, rain and unsafe surf possible.

"There will also be an increase in surf over the rest of the Hawaiian Islands through Friday". On the Big Island's southeastern corner, that means voters are gearing up for the polls even as a volcano oozes lava and Hurricane Hector aims for waters to the south.
