Still dealing with an erupting Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island, state officials in Hawaii are urging the public to prepare for Hurricane Hector.

The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said Hurricane Hector is recording sustained winds of 140mph, which are capable of causing devastating damage to populated areas.

Surf: Swells generated by Hector are forecast to reach southeast and east shores of the Big Island and Maui late Tuesday.

The volcano is in the middle of a three-month eruption of lava which has been spewing since May and has covered 13.4 square miles of the island's surface. Now, Hurricane Hector is forecast to slide along the south coast of the island by midweek.

Even as a months-long volcanic eruption goes on, Hawaii is now on alert for a risky hurricane forecast to pass south of the islands at midweek.

Tom Travis, Hawaii's emergency management administrator, said: "Hector is our first hurricane this year".

Hurricane Hector roared as a major Category 3 storm over the Pacific Ocean on Saturday, but was far from land. A motion toward the west-northwest at an increased forward speed is expected through Tuesday, followed by a westward motion Tuesday night through Friday. It was projected to gradually weaken while still remaining a hurricane over the next several days.

That would put the storm on a virtual collision course with Kilauea Volcano, situated on the southern portion of the island.

Meanwhile, forecasters also have their eyes on two Tropical Storms in the Eastern Pacific.

A tropical storm watch is in effect for the Big Island of Hawaii due to the the chance for winds of 39 miles per hour or stronger on Wednesday.

A tropical storm watch is in effect Monday for waters south of the Big Island.
