Hurricane John weakens a little off Mexican coast

Hurricane John weakens a little off Mexican coast

Hector also posed no immediate threat to land, but forecasters said people in Hawaii should monitor the storm's progress as it was projected to pass just south of the islands by midweek.

According to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, the center of the hurricane was located about 225 miles south-southeast of Hilo, or 400 miles southeast of Honolulu.

Big Island officials are taking precautions in advance of the storm nearing the state.

Swells from Hector will produce surf heights from 12 to 15 feet on east-facing shores mainly for the Puna and Kau districts of the Big Island Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. It was moving northwest at 8 miles per hour (13 kph).

“The probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean is below normal due to the forecast for a below-average season.”. It was likely to bring rain to the southern peninsula, as well as heavy surf.

The storm was moving west at roughly 15 miles per hour. But often, the effect is additive when hurricanes come together - we usually end up with one massive storm instead of two smaller ones.

That left three disturbances in the Eastern Pacific: Tropical Strom Ileana formed near Manzanillo on Monday but has now been absorbed by the much larger Hurricane John, while the newly formed Tropical Storm Kristy is roughly halfway between Cabo and Hawaii. A turn toward the northeast is forecast by this afternoon, and that motion should continue into Thursday. None of these storms was a threat to Florida.
