Tropical Storm Florence turns into a hurricane

Tropical Storm Florence turns into a hurricane

This is the second tropical storm to hit the islands this year.

Hurricane Olivia weakened Friday as it moved west toward Hawaii, the National Hurricane Center said. Norman was moving north-northwest at 9 miles per hour and had maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour.

The National Hurricane Center has issued advisories for the Atlantic on Hurricane Florence, and two tropical storms, Helene and Isaac. As of 2 p.m. Friday, it was pinpointed about 1,375 miles east of Hilo and 1,550 miles east of Honolulu. It was moving west at 6 miles per hour.

As of the NHC's advisory issued at 11 a.m. EST Sunday, Hurricane Florence's center will move over the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas on Tuesday and Wednesday, and it will get to the southeastern USA coast on Thursday.

According to the NHC, "Olivia is forecast to approach the main Hawaiian Islands from the east on Tuesday, and pass close to or over the Islands on Wednesday". Gov. David Ige said "We're monitoring this storm closely and taking steps now to ensure that we're prepared for its impacts to the state".

That's because Florence will reach areas that have already experienced a lot of rain in recent weeks - and it won't take much for flash floods to start in these regions.

Hurricane Hector has returned to a Category 4 storm and picked-up speed as it moves towards Hawaii's Big Island. Due to that, we have Tropical Storm Watches out for the Islands in advance of the storm. Even if Olivia arrives as a tropical storm, as predicted, Hawaii is in danger of experiencing high winds, heavy rains, high surf, storm surges and flooding that threaten to harm communities and cause extensive damage to public and private property across the state.
