First a volcano, now a hurricane?
Some residents on the Big Island of Hawaii have already endured a wild year due to the ongoing eruption of the Kilauea volcano. Now, Hurricane Hector is forecast to slide along the south coast of the island by midweek.
⚠️ #Hurricane #Hector is strengthening! A category 4 storm with winds now of 145 MPH in the central Pacific. Hector is expected to pass just south of the Big Island of Hawaii Wednesday night. #HIwx pic.twitter.com/wdAWqJEW5b— Mark Tarello (@mark_tarello) August 6, 2018
Active Pacific Ocean! 4 tropical waves including hurricane #Hector that looks to brush just south of Hawaii. This far out this cone can shift 150 Miles so please keep an eye on it as impacts now are mostly high surf but that can intensify if this compact storm nudges north at all pic.twitter.com/awPHhp1814— Ginger Zee (@Ginger_Zee) August 6, 2018
