Hurricane Hector is headed toward Hawaii, where a volcano is erupting

Hurricane Hector could collide with erupting Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii

The Hawaiian Islands were placed on alert as Hector swirled toward the central Pacific, the National Hurricane Center said.

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 125 miles per hour and was moving west at 12 miles per hour.

As of 11 p.m. ET Saturday, Hector was located 1,395 miles south of Hilo, Hawaii. Kilauea volcano continues to erupt in Hawaii, and now the islands are in the path of a category 3 hurricane.

It put the two-time major victor tied for eighth at five-under par overall, with leader Pornanong Phatlum of Thailand at 10-under. Meanwhile, New Zealand's Ben Campbell holds a four shot lead after the second round of the Fiji International tournament.


Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km).

"While the official forecast track continues to lie south of the Hawaiian Islands, only a slight deviation to the north of the forecast track would significantly increase potential impacts on the Hawaiian Islands", the NHC said. Though it's not certain to make landfall, the NHC's cone of uncertainty shows the eye of the storm could hit the island's southernmost point.

Hector was on a trajectory that could brush the southern coast of the Big Island late on Wednesday morning, the NHC said.

It's slated to cross into the Central Pacific basin by early Monday. "We want to remind the public we are in the middle of the hurricane season and we urge people to take the weekend to prepare their homes and families for impacts that could be felt statewide", Tom Travis, Hawaii's Administrator of Emergency Management, said in a news release.

Since the Kilauea volcano erupted in May on the Big Island, thousands of residents have been displaced, hundreds of homes destroyed and roads damaged.

South-eastern parts of the Big Island have been wrecked by the eruption and subsequent lava flows from the Kilauea Volcano, but AccuWeather meterologist Jim Andrews predicted few further hazards to be caused by Hector.
