Hurricane Hector Churns in Pacific, Could Pass Close to Hawaii

MEXICO CITY – Hurricane Hector, a Category 3 on the Saffir-Simpson scale, continues to move through the Pacific although, because it is far from the Mexican coast, it is not affecting Mexico, the weather service said on Sunday.

Hector’s track could take it gradually toward Hawaii and although it will not make landfall, it could bring heavy rains to the archipelago’s big island.

“Hector is located west-southwest of the Baja California Peninsula, very far from the (Mexican) coast,” the service said in a public advisory.

At 4 pm the storm was located 2,870 kilometers (1,780 miles) west-southwest of Punta Eugenia, in the northwestern state of Baja California.

Hector is moving westwards at 19 kph (12 mph) with sustained winds of 205 kph (127 mph) and gusts of up to 250 kph (155 mph).

The storm attained Category 4 for a few hours on Saturday, but it has weakened again in the succeeding hours.

According to official forecasts, the storm will decline to Category 2 in the coming days as it moves farther from the Mexican coast.

Hector is the eighth tropical storm of this year’s Pacific hurricane season after Aletta, Bud, Carlotta, Daniel, Emilia, Fabio and Gilma.
