Hurricane Hector

Hawaii County officials declared a precautionary state of emergency ahead of the storm.

On Aug. 8 at 7:45 a.m. EDT (1145 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite analyzed Hurricane Hector's cloud top temperatures in infrared light. That's about 240 miles (390 km) south-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. 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. This general motion is expected to continue through Thursday, with a gradual turn toward the northwest expected Friday and Saturday. Hector is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

However, the hurricane was forecast to weaken a little over the next 48 hours. However, Hector will likely remain a powerful hurricane through Thursday night.

The eye of the storm is expected to pass about 150 miles south of the Big Island.

An uptick in squalls, locally heavy rain, brief gusty winds, heavy seas and surf may occur on the islands through the latter part of the week, AccuWeather reported.

If the storm deviates northwards it could bring Hector close enough to impact the Big Island directly. "However, very rough surf is expected to impact mostly south- and east-facing coastal areas of the Big Island".
