Eye of Hurricane Olivia breaking apart

Eye of Hurricane Olivia breaking apart

At 11 a.m. today, the storm was 660 miles east-northeast of Hilo and 825 miles east of Honolulu.

The National Weather Service has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for Oahu, Maui County, and Hawaii County as Hurricane Olivia nears the islands. "Some gradual weakening is possible on Tuesday", the advisory says, "but Olivia will likely remain a threat to the Hawaiian Islands next week". Still, heavy rain and tropical storm-force winds could threaten the state.

"Little change in strength is forecast during the next couple of days, and Olivia is expected to remain a hurricane through Monday evening".

"In other words, the major hurricane track, currently, is basically confined to the south of the Hawaiian Islands". It was moving west toward the islands at approximately 14 miles per hour.

"We're monitoring this storm closely and taking steps now to ensure that we're prepared for its impacts to the state".

Tropical Cyclone Olivia closes in on Hawaii Sunday afternoon, September 9, 2018.

I am focused on trying to make that happen. "Tennis is cruel sometimes because I think this match didn't really deserve a loser". Nadal leads 11-5, including the past three, each at a Grand Slam tournament: in the semifinals of the U.S.

Hurricane Olivia, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center's advisory issued at 11 a.m. ET Sunday, is approaching Hawaii with maximum sustained winds near 80 miles per hour and is expected to remain at hurricane strength through Monday evening. "Now is the time to prepare", said Gov. David Ige.

But flash flooding could be a concern.

It is still too early to know what effects this hurricane will have on Hawai'i Island.

Olivia is barely hanging on to hurricane status as it approaches Hawaii.

A satellite image, supplied by the US National Weather Service, shows Hurricane Hector, a category four, as it moves towards the south of Hawaii. As NPR's Bill Chappell reported, the town of Mountain View on the Big Island recorded 51.53 inches of rain as a result of Lane, the third-highest total ever measured from a USA storm.
