Hurricane Hector is located about 1,360 miles from South Point, located on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Hurricane Hector strengthened to a Category 3 hurricane Friday with maximum sustained winds of 120 miles per hour.
Hurricane Hector became a Category 4 storm for a few hours early Sunday but then dipped back to Category 3, still a unsafe force, as it headed across the Pacific, threatening to hit Hawaii's Big Island and possibly its active volcano, officials said early Sunday. Fluctuations in strength are likely during the next few days.
Hector is moving toward the west near 12 miles per hour, and this general motion is expected to continue for the next few days with some increase in forward speed, according to NHC forecasters.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km).
Under the current forecast track, Hector is expected to pass south of the Big Island of Hawaii late Wednesday or Wednesday night.
The center of the storm was located about 1,360 miles east of South Point, Hawaii, as of the NHC's 2 a.m. PDT update.
While there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, the NHC said that people on the Hawaiian islands should keep an eye on the storm.
State officials urged residents to take precaution and prepare for the storm. "Hector is our first hurricane this year".
