Hurricane-force winds extend about 30 miles (45 kilometers) from Hector's center and tropical storm-force winds can reach up to 90 miles (150 kilometres) from the eye outwards. At the peak of the speed of the Hector reached 120 km per hour.

The National Weather Service says the system will continue to weaken in the coming days as it moves westward.

On its current track, the storm is forecast to pass south of Hawaii later today.

The CPHC noted swells and tropical storm conditions would affect the Big Island today, August 8.

Hurricane Hector remained a category 3 storm.

By Tuesday evening, Hector was packing maximum sustained winds of 130 miles per hour. It was centered about 1,135 miles (1,825 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula and it was moving toward the west at 14 mph (22 kph). A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area later today.

Even though the path of the storm shows it passing south of Hawaii's Big Island, the effects of a hurricane can extend well away from the centre, NWS Honolulu said.

If the storm deviates northwards it could bring Hector close enough to impact the Big Island directly.

The Mayor's office has issued an emergency proclamation for Hawaii Island. Large surf is also expected along east facing shores of Maui.

"Tropical storm conditions are expected across portions of the Big Island on Wednesday as the core of Hector passes to south". Hector's strongest winds are confined to about 40 miles from the eye and are not expected to affect the island.

There are warnings of potentially high surf on southeast shores of Ka'u and Puna, located on the coastline of the Hawaii Volcanoes national Park.

Swells generated by Hector will bring large and unsafe surf to portions of the main Hawaiian islands through tonight.
