A growing hurricane absorbed a tropical storm off Mexico's Pacific Coast on Tuesday and a new subtropical storm formed in the northern Atlantic, though none were projected to make landfall.
High rainfall from deep tropical moisture surrounding Hector is predicted to affect the Puna and Kau districts of the Big Island as the hurricane passes by south of the state.
It was centered about 345 miles (555 kilometers) south of the southern tip of the Baja Tuesday morning and was moving to the northwest at 9 mph (15 kph), a track that would keep it out to sea.
The swells are likely to cause "life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", it added.
So far this season we have had Subtropical Storm Alberto, which formed in May, as well as Hurricane Beryl and Hurricane Chris.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said the hurricane poses no short-term threat to land.
A tropical storm warning has been issued for Hawaii County as Hurricane Hector continues its approach toward Hawaiian waters.
"The storm is moving toward the north near 16 mph [26 km/h], and this general motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected during the next 24 hours".
