Hurricane Hector remained a category 3 storm. Hurricane-force winds extend about 30 miles (45 kilometers) from Hector's center and tropical storm-force winds can reach up to 90 miles (150 kilometres) from the eye outwards.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service say surf will rise 12 to 15 feet along east shores of the Big Island, and 6 to 10 feet along east shores of Maui.

On the five-point Saffir-Simpson scale, a Category Five storm is the most unsafe, with winds exceeding 156 miles per hour (251 kph).

As a precaution, Hawaii County officials have closed three beaches - Whittington, Punaluu and Milolii beach parks - on Tuesday. Hector's strongest winds are confined to about 40 miles from the eye and are not expected to affect the island.
