The forecast track for Hurricane Hector.
Hurricane Hector strengthened to a Category 3 hurricane Friday with maximum sustained winds of 120 miles per hour.
Hurricane Hector is located about 1,360 miles from South Point, located on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Hector was a Category 3 storm early Sunday as it churned toward the Hawaiian Islands, an archipelago that includes the Big Island. "However, Hector is expected to still be a major hurricane when it moves into the central Pacific basin", the National Hurricane Center said.
Forecasters say little change in strength is expected through Monday, but some slight weakening is forecast Monday night through Wednesday.
Hurricane Hector became a Category 4 storm for a few hours early Sunday but then dipped back to Category 3, still a unsafe force, as it headed across the Pacific, threatening to hit Hawaii's Big Island and possibly its active volcano, officials said early Sunday.

Quake strikes Indonesian island; tsunami possible
There were no immediate reports of casualties, but authorities said the quake might have caused some damage. The tremble came a week after a magnitude-6.4 quake killed 14 people on the tourist island.
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-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 953 mb (28.15 inches).
The Category 3 hurricane was centered about 1,360 miles (2,190 kilometers) east of South Point, Hawaii, early Sunday and was moving west at 12 mph (19 kph).
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 125 miles per hour with higher gusts, making Hector a strong category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Scale.
"There is the potential for Hector to bring some impacts to portions of the Hawaiian Islands by the middle of next week, but it is too soon to specify the magnitude of the impacts or where they could occur", the National Hurricane Center said, in its latest forecast.
