NASA finds Hurricane Norman hammered by wind shear

"Hurricane Olivia is forecast to approach the islands from the east early next week, then move through the region from east to west Tuesday night through midweek". Still, heavy rain and tropical storm-force winds could threaten the islands.

As of 11 a.m., the storm was located 330 miles north-northeast of Hilo and 375 miles east-northeast of Honolulu. "I can't find another example of a hurricane/typhoon nearing Guam, Hawaii & the eastern United States at nearly exactly the same time (days ~ 4,5,6 respectively)".

The Central Pacific Hurricane Center downgraded Norman to a tropical storm Friday as the system moved away from Hawaii.

There are no warnings or advisories in effect at this time. Norman was moving north-northwest at 9 miles per hour.

The US National Hurricane Centre is urging people in Hawaii to prepare for its arrival in the coming days.

The legacy financial institution is reportedly dropping all plans to open a trading desk for cryptocurrencies , however. Today, the currency started off with a price of $7,371 - and hit the lowest point of the day at $6,997 momentarily.

On Saturday, Olivia is forecast to be the fifth hurricane to enter the Central Pacific this hurricane season.

Four years ago, Tropical Storm Iselle caused about $80 million in crop damage on the Big Island and caused major problems for residents.

But flash flooding could be a concern. Late Saturday or Sunday, the storm's expected to make a turn toward the west or west-southwest as a ridge builds north to the north.

This news about Hurricane Olivia comes just weeks after Hurricane Lane brought 3-4 feet of rainfall to parts of Hawaii.

Most models now show the system tracking over the Big Island as a Tropical Storm on Wednesday; however the long-term forecast continues to undergo revisions as new data is evaluated with each update.
