Hector hits Category 3
The National Hurricane Center on Sunday warned residents of Hawaii that Hurricane Hector, a Category 3 storm, could make landfall on the islands this week.
The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said Hurricane Hector is recording sustained winds of 140mph, which are capable of causing devastating damage to populated areas. Lava from the volcano has destroyed more than 700 structures, including residences, since eruptions began in May.
The current Kilauea lava flow from one of about two dozen volcanic fissures that opened in the ground has been going on for 93 days, making the longest non-stop eruption on record from Kilauea's lower East Rift zone.
Hurricane Hector is expected to pass Hawaii by the middle of the week, although by that time it could weaken into a tropical storm.
Hurricane Hector was carrying 205 kmph winds westward across the Pacific Ocean early today.
According to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, the center of the storm was located about 540 miles east-southeast of Hilo, or about 750 miles east-southeast of Honolulu.
Gates admits he cheated on wife at Manafort trial
Gates' earlier testimony on Tuesday, meanwhile, centered on how Ukrainian businessmen paid Manafort for his consultancy work. Downing also asked Gates if he had submitted personal expenses to President Donald Trump's inaugural committee.
Even as a months-long volcanic eruption goes on, Hawaii is now on alert for a risky hurricane forecast to pass south of the islands at midweek.
It was expected to pick up speed from its 14 miles per hour westward crawl into the central Pacific on Monday, the centre said in an advisory late on Sunday.
That would put the storm on a virtual collision course with Kilauea Volcano, situated on the southern portion of the island. We introduced some elevated precipitation chances over the eastern slopes of the Big Island from Wednesday into Thursday as deep tropical moisture will likely move up the slopes of Maunakea and Maunaloa producing enhanced rainfall activity.
