Forecast models show the storm passing near the island to the south Wednesday.
The island will see a major impact from Hector, as hurricane force winds extend up to 40 miles from the center and tropical storm force winds 115 miles.
Hurricane Hector is tracking for a close call with Hawaii's Big Island, parts of which are still coping with destruction from the ongoing eruption of the Kilauea volcano.
According to geologist Janet Babb, of the US Geological Survey, that surpassed eruptions from the lower zone of several weeks and 88 days recorded in 1840 and 1955 respectively.
Hurricane Hector is gaining strength as it barrels through the Pacific - and could make landfall in Hawaii by the middle of the week.

State officials urged residents to take precaution and prepare for the storm.
The County of Hawai'i reports that the county is preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Hector in the Central Pacific region later this week. "By 48 h, the hurricane is predicted to encounter some drier mid-level air which is forecast to cause gradual weakening after that time".
That would put the storm on a virtual collision course with Kilauea Volcano, situated on the southern portion of the island.
It was expected to pick up speed from its 14 miles per hour westward crawl into the central Pacific on Monday, the centre said in an advisory late on Sunday.
Hector is expected to hit Hawaii's Big Island late on Wednesday morning. "It is still too soon to tell what effects this hurricane will have (if any) on the Hawaii islands".
