Olivia expected to pass over Hawaii as a tropical storm

Olivia's track shows it coming close to the Big Island

Members of the Washington Task Force 1 are in Hawaii and gearing up to help if Hurricane Olivia wreaks havoc on the islands.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles, according to the NHC.

Hurricane Olivia, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center's advisory issued at 11 a.m. ET Sunday, is approaching Hawaii with maximum sustained winds near 80 miles per hour and is expected to remain at hurricane strength through Monday evening.

Meanwhile closer to Hawaii, Tropical Storm Norman continued to move north-northwest away from the islands. Elsewhere, we have Helene as a Category 1 Hurricane west of the Cabo Verde Islands with 85 miles per hour sustained wind speeds.

The storm's sustained winds reached 75 mph (121 kph), just over the threshold for a hurricane, on Sunday morning as it was swirling across the Atlantic, about 750 miles (1,210 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda.

As of the NHC's advisory issued at 11 a.m. EST Sunday, Hurricane Florence's center will move over the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas on Tuesday and Wednesday, and it will get to the southeastern USA coast on Thursday.

The hurricane is now forecast to pass the south of Hawaii on Wednesday.

But flash flooding could be a concern.

The storm's current motion is expected to continue with some slowing in forward speed through Monday. As a result, a Hurricane Watch and Tropical Storm Warning are in effect for the Cabo Verde islands of Santiago, Fogo and Brava.

It's approaching the islands from a completely different direction than last month's Hurricane Lane, which dumped record amounts of rainfall on the Big Island.
