Hurricane, 2 tropical storms are swirling off western Mexico

The storm was moving west at roughly 16 miles per hour.

Service of Jamaica is reporting that tropical storm Debby, which is not a threat to Jamaica, has strengthened slightly as it makes its way towards the North Atlantic.

However, Hector could bring at least parts of the Big Island tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph) today, particularly on the southern tip of the island and eastward-facing coasts.

At 8 a.m. EDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Ileana was located near latitude 15.7 degrees north and longitude 101.2 degrees west.

A tropical storm watch remains in effect for Hawaii Island, which means tropical storm conditions are possible for the area within a 48-hour time period.

Hawaii's Big Island will begin feeling gusty winds and rain Tuesday as Hurricane Hector approaches.

According to the National Hurricane Center, "small but powerful" Hector continues to churn away in the eastern Pacific as a Category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds of 120 miles per hour. Swells generated by Hector are expected to reach southeast and east facing shores of the Big Island and eastern Maui late today, likely becoming large and risky by late tonight and Wednesday. Higher than usual tides will combine with the large surf to cause coastal inundation.

"The volcano, Madam Pele, has totally wiped out all the homes that would have been in danger", he said, referring to the Hawaiian volcano goddess, and noting that those neighbourhoods suffered a lot of damage when Tropical Storm Iselle hit the Big Island in 2014.

John was centered about 340 miles (545 kilometers) southwest of the Mexican port of Manzanillo early Monday afternoon, with maximum sustained winds of 70 mph (110 kph).

Gradual weakening is forecast over the next few days.
