Another hurricane is barreling toward Hawaii

Now a Category 1 storm, Olivia was about 825 miles east northeast of Hilo, Hawaii as of 11 p.m. local time Saturday (5 a.m. Sunday ET), the Central Pacific Hurricane Center said. Hurricane Olivia, now a strong Category 2 storm with 110 miles per hour winds, likely will make landfall as a tropical storm on either the Big Island or Maui on Wednesday, CBS News weather producer David Parkinson said.

The National Hurricane Center has issued advisories for the Atlantic on Hurricane Florence, and two tropical storms, Helene and Isaac. As we get within the next few days, we'll have a better idea of where Florence could make landfall, so keep checking back in for updates.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the storm's center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or risky. "Florence is forecast to rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Monday, and is expected to remain an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday", the advisory says.

Hawaii residents are on edge again as the latest storm threat shows Hurricane Olivia headed for the Islands.

Meanwhile, forecasters say Hurricane Olivia is in a low wind shear environment - and that's not a good thing.

School closures may be expected for midweek, similar to what happened with Hurricane Gordon in the southeast USA, given the potential for another foot or more of rain.

The storm was expected to bring rain and high surf rising to rise up to 18 feet on east-facing shores of Hawaii Island and Maui.

According to the NHC, "Olivia is forecast to approach the main Hawaiian Islands from the east on Tuesday, and pass close to or over the Islands on Wednesday". "We're well into the alphabet".
