Just noticed Hawaii is under the gun from a Tropical Storm.

At 500 PM HST (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Olivia was located
near latitude 21.7 North, longitude 146.1 West. Olivia is moving
toward the west near 12 mph (19 km/h) and this motion is
expected to continue for the next 12 to 24 hours or so with some
slowing in forward speed. A west-southwest motion is expected to
begin later Monday. On the forecast track, Olivia will be
approaching the main Hawaiian Islands later Tuesday and Tuesday
night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 36
hours, with gradual weakening expected afterward.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles
(205 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 988 mb (29.18 inches).
