Tropical storm Debby strengthens in Atlantic but is expected to weaken soon

Tropical storm Debby strengthens in Atlantic but is expected to weaken soon

A tropical storm watch has been issued for the Big Island of Hawaii as Hurricane Hector on Tuesday kept churning west across the Pacific as a powerful Category 4 hurricane.

There have been three named Atlantic storms this year: Subtropical Storm Alberto formed in May, followed by hurricanes Beryl and Chris.

"Very rough surf is expected to impact mostly south- and east-facing coastal areas of the Big Island", AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said.

Debby was centered about 1,195 miles (1,925 kilometers) west of the Azores and moving north near 15 mph (24 kph).

Farther out in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Kristy had sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (75 kph) and was moving west-northwest at 8 miles per hour (13 kph).

Rain: Enhanced rainfall from the deep tropical moisture around Hector will affect the Puna and Ka'u Districts of Hawaii Island, and some of those rain showers may be locally heavy at times, especially on east and southeast-facing slopes.

“The probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean is below normal due to the forecast for a below-average season.”. None of these storms was a threat to Florida.

According to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, the center of the storm was located about 470 miles east-southeast of Hilo, or about 665 miles east-southeast of Honolulu.

A tropical storm warning has been posted for the Big Island of Hawaii, where tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph) are expected Wednesday, especially downslope from mountains, across elevated terrain, over headlands and through gaps.
