Hurricane Hector is tracking for a close call with Hawaii's Big Island, parts of which are still coping with destruction from the ongoing eruption of the Kilauea volcano. The hurricane center said in its 5 p.m. update the "far northern fringes of the hurricane will brush the Big Island on Wednesday".

Surf along east-facing shores is already building and will peak later today and tonight, at 12 to 15 feet for the Big Island, mainly for the Puna and Ka'ū Districts. Some local flash flooding is possible in a few spots, particularly along east-, south- or southeastward-facing slopes of the Big Island.

"There is a reasonable chance that Hector will survive to cross the International Date Line early next week", said AccuWeather meteorologist Steve Travis. Forecasters note that hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles. It will not affect any land areas.

Farther out in the Pacific was recently formed Tropical Storm Kristy, which had sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 kph) and could become a hurricane.

More than two months into the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, the forecasters' predictions of a quiet year appear to be accurate.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Hector is also swirling in the Pacific as an impressively organized Category 4 hurricane.

US to slap fresh tariffs on Chinese goods in two weeks
Shipping containers are seen stacked at the Dachan Bay Terminals in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China July 12, 2018. Washington already imposed 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese products on July 6.
