Hurricane Hector is barreling toward Hawaii as a Category 4 storm with maximum wind speeds of 125 mph. It is not yet clear whether Hector will hit the islands directly or pass to the south of the archipelago as it moves into the central Pacific basin Sunday night. Of particular concern is the southernmost Big Island of Hawaii, the most likely to experience the brunt of the storm — and the site of the ongoing Kilauea volcanic eruption. It is unknown what effect the low atmospheric pressure of the storm could have on the volcano.
