Now a Category 2 hurricane located more than 1,500 miles east of Honolulu, Olivia is expected to weaken into a tropical storm by the time it reaches the islands early Wednesday.

"Right now, Olivia is tracking westward, south of the ridge", said John Bravender, warning coordination meteorologist at the Central Pacific Hurricane Center. Maximum sustained winds were measured at 80 miles per hour with higher gusts. A west-southwest motion is expected to begin later tonight. Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 30 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extended outward up to 115 miles.

The National Hurricane Center has issued advisories for the Atlantic on Hurricane Florence, and two tropical storms, Helene and Isaac. Elsewhere, we have Helene as a Category 1 Hurricane west of the Cabo Verde Islands with 85 miles per hour sustained wind speeds. "Some gradual weakening is possible on Tuesday, but Olivia will likely remain a threat to the Hawaiian Islands next week", the hurricane center said.

"Pretend, assume, presume that a major hurricane is going to hit right smack dab in the middle of SC".

Hawai'i County will not be distributing sandbags until active flooding occurs.

The storm was expected to bring rain and high surf rising to rise up to 18 feet on east-facing shores of Hawaii Island and Maui. The proclamation also authorizes the expenditure of state monies as appropriated for the speedy and efficient relief of damages, losses, and suffering resulting from Hurricane Olivia.

The US National Hurricane Centre is urging people in Hawaii to prepare for its arrival in the coming days.

Helene, now classified as a tropical storm, is, according to the latest NHS advisory, expected to become a hurricane soon as well. "Now is the time to prepare", Ige said in a statement.
