* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:  
- NONE  
 
* STORM INFORMATION:

SITUATION OVERVIEW  
------------------  
 
HURRICANE HECTOR WILL BE PASSING FAR SOUTH ENOUGH WITH MINIMAL IMPACT  
ON THE BIG ISLAND. THEREFORE THE TROPICAL STORM WARNING FOR THAT ISLAND  
IS CANCELLED.  
 
BREEZY TRADE WINDS WILL PREVAIL ACROSS THE STATE, WITH STRONG WINDS  
AFFECTING LANAI AND THE SUMMITS OF MAUNA KEA AND MAUNA LOA. A WIND  
ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR THOSE AREAS UNTIL MIDNIGHT.  
 
SURF ALONG EAST FACING SHORES CONTINUES TO BUILD AND IS EXPECTED TO  
PEAK TODAY. EXPECT SURF HEIGHTS OF 12 TO 15 FEET MAINLY FOR THE PUNA  
AND KAU DISTRICTS OF THE BIG ISLAND. HIGH SURF COMBINING WITH  
SEASONABLY HIGH TIDES WILL PRODUCE OVERWASH ON LOW-LYING COASTAL AREAS  
AND ROADWAYS, LEADING TO INCREASED POTENTIAL FOR COASTAL EROSION.  
 
RAIN BANDS ASSOCIATED WITH HECTOR ARE MOVING ACROSS THE WINDWARD AND  
SOUTHEAST COASTAL WATERS OF THE BIG ISLAND. ENHANCED RAINFALL FROM  
DEEP TROPICAL MOISTURE SURROUNDING HECTOR WILL AFFECT THE PUNA, KAU,  
NORTH HILO, AND SOUTH HILO DISTRICTS OF THE BIG ISLAND THROUGH  
THURSDAY.  
 
POTENTIAL IMPACTS  
-----------------  
 
* WIND:  
LITTLE TO NO IMPACTS ARE ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME ACROSS THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS,  
EXCEPT FOR LANAI AND THE SUMMITS OF MAUNA KEA AND MAUNA LOA.  
 
* FLOODING RAIN:  
ADDITIONAL IMPACTS FROM FLOODING RAIN ARE STILL A CONCERN ACROSS WINDWARD  
BIG ISLAND. REMAIN WELL GUARDED AGAINST LOCALLY HAZARDOUS FLOOD WATERS HAVING  
FURTHER IMPACTS OF LIMITED POTENTIAL.  
 
ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS, LITTLE TO NO IMPACT IS  
ANTICIPATED.  
 
* TORNADOES:  
LITTLE TO NO IMPACTS ARE ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME  
ACROSS THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.  
 
* OTHER COASTAL HAZARDS:  
PREPARE FOR LOCALLY HAZARDOUS HIGH SURF WITH COASTAL IMPACTS ALONG EAST  
FACING SHORES OF THE BIG ISLAND. HIGHER TIDES THIS AFTERNOON WILL INCREASE  
THE POSSIBILITY OF COASTAL INUNDATION, DUE TO THE COMBINATION OF HIGH SURF  
AND HIGH TIDES.  
 
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS  
----------------------------------  
 
* EVACUATIONS:  
LISTEN TO LOCAL OFFICIAL FOR RECOMMENDED PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS.  
 
* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:  
 
BE ALERT FOR POTENTIAL FLOODING FROM RISING RIVERS AND STREAMS. REMAIN  
INFORMED OF THE LATEST FORECASTS AND HEED ANY FLOOD WATCHES AND WARNINGS.
