Hurricane John devours Tropical Storm Ileana in the Pacific

Tropical Storm Ileana

Hector is expected to pass 200 miles South of the big island of Hawaii on Wednesday.

It's located around 1,200 miles west-northwest of The Azores, with winds that have picked up a little to 45 mph as it moves north-northeast at 9 mph.

Surf along the island's east-facing shores is already building and will peak later today and tonight, at 12 to 15 feet for the Big Island mainly in the Puna and Kau districts with 6 to 10 feet surf for eastern Maui. Some local flash flooding is possible in a few spots, particularly along east-, south- or southeastward-facing slopes of the Big Island. "There is a reasonable chance that Hector will survive to cross the International Date Line early next week", said AccuWeather meteorologist Steve Travis. It was likely to bring rain to the southern part of peninsula as well as heavy surf.

Far out to sea was newly formed Tropical Storm Kristy, which had sustained winds of 50 miles per hour and could become a hurricane.

The fourth named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season has formed, however Subtropical Storm Debby is "not a threat to Bermuda", the Bermuda Weather Service said, with its closest point of approach to Bermuda within 72 hrs having passed. But often, the effect is additive when hurricanes come together - we usually end up with one massive storm instead of two smaller ones.

Last week finished up with a hurricane and three disturbances in the East Pacific tropics.
