Pacific hurricane absorbs trop storm; new storm in Atlantic

Hurricane Hector

But as we head towards the peak of hurricane season, the lack of serious storms in the Atlantic so far this season does not mean that things can't change. Right now, Debby is located about 1100 miles west of the Azores Islands. A subtropical storm is a hybrid of a tropical and non-tropical system.

A high surf warning has been issued for east-facing shores of Hawaii Island for 12-13 foot waves.

Hurricane Hector, with 130 mph winds, is about 540 miles east-southeast of Hilo.

The storm will continue moving west after it passes by Hawaii. A tropical storm watch was in effect for the Big Island as Hector was expected to pass Tuesday night and Wednesday as it moved westward.

John was expected to strengthen rapidly and become a major hurricane by late Tuesday.

Under the proposed rule change, they would have to declare their intent by 5 p.m. the Monday following the NBA Draft. The new rules also allow for heavier punishments, like longer head coach suspensions and stronger fines.

Tropical storm-force winds extend 90 miles from the center of the storm, and hurricane-force winds extend up to 25 miles. Mexican officials discontinued a hurricane watch from Punta San Telmo in Michoacan state to Playa Perula in Jalisco state, though Ileana still could cause heavy surf and rains in that area.

The active season in the Pacific contrasts to the relatively quiet season in the Atlantic.

An American-based meteorology group has said cool water in the Atlantic could lead to fewer tropical storms this year.

The storm is not now a threat to any land.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will release its updated mid-season hurricane forecast on Thursday.
