As of 5 p.m. Olivia was about 595 miles east-northeast of Hilo, packing maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.

Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center say Olivia is forecast to be approaching the Hawaiian Islands on Tuesday with some gradual weakening forecast during the next 72 hours. First, Hurricane Florence was last observed as a strong Category 1 storm with sustained wind speeds of 90 miles per hour and a minimum pressure of 974 millibars. A west-southwest motion is expected to begin later tonight.

The National Hurricane Center has issued advisories for the Atlantic on Hurricane Florence, and two tropical storms, Helene and Isaac. A watch means residents should prepare for severe weather conditions within 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds and conditions that make outside preparations hard or risky.

"Little change in strength is forecast during the next couple of days, and Olivia is expected to remain a hurricane through Monday evening".

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

This news about Hurricane Olivia comes just weeks after Hurricane Lane brought 3-4 feet of rainfall to parts of Hawaii. "The majority of inland flood fatalities occur in vehicles".

A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch area. The proclamation also authorizes the expenditure of state monies as appropriated for the speedy and efficient relief of damages, losses, and suffering resulting from Hurricane Olivia.

School closures may be expected for midweek, similar to what happened with Hurricane Gordon in the southeast US, given the potential for another foot or more of rain. "Now is the time to prepare", Ige said in a statement.
