Authorities issued category 4 storm warning
In Hawaii, officials have issued warnings about Hurricane Hector, which is expected to hit the state this week. The storm has gained strength and must present category 4, in relation to its intensity, with winds of 225 km / h.
In May, the US state had already faced serious problems when a volcano erupted. Now the concern is due to the fact that the route of the hurricane may coincide with the area from which the lava flows from Kilauea, whose side crater is collapsing.
Geologists and meteorologists are united to study the risks. Melissa Dye of the National Weather Service said that Hector is small but strong.
Governor David Ige used social networks to report storm evacuation tips. The goal is to keep the population safe.
Already County Mayor Harry Kim has spoken out to ensure the officers are prepared for “what nature brings” to Hawaii.
According to the Reuters news agency, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) located Hector about 1,188 kilometers southeast of the island. Its winds have stretched 48 kilometers beyond its center and its tropical winds of 119 km / h have reached 168 kilometers.
The hurricane may have picked up speed as it headed toward the center of the Pacific on Monday (6). However, there is hope. The NHC predicts a gradual weakening until Wednesday.
