The eye of Hurricane Hector is currently forecasted to pass to the south of Big Island early next week. According to the National Hurricane Center, the storm is heading towards some cooler surface temperatures, which could help to weaken the storm. Since Hector is a smaller hurricane, it is prone to fluctuations in intensity.
Please pray for the Hurricane to dissipate before making landfall or to miss the Hawaiian Islands. Pray that people will remain calm and prepare the storm. Please pray for homes and property to be protected from damaging winds and rains.
Here is an update from the National Hurricane Center.
There is the potential for Hector to affect portions of the Hawaiian Islands by the middle of next week, but it is too soon to specify the magnitude of any impacts or where they could occur. This is a good time for everyone in the Hawaiian Islands to ensure they have their hurricane plan in place. For additional information on any potential local impacts from Hector in Hawaii, please refer to products issued by the NWS Weather Forecast Office in Honolulu at http://www.prh.noaa.gov/hnl.
