Hurricane Hector was carrying 205 kmph winds westward across the Pacific Ocean early today.

The US National Hurricane Centre in Miami said the hurricane poses no short-term threat to land.

It said that Hector's projected path would carry it south of Hawaii by midweek, but noted that track projections are uncertain at a long time range and added, "This remains a good time for everyone in the Hawaiian Islands to ensure they have their hurricane plan in place."

The Category 3 hurricane was centered about 2,190 kilometers east of South Point, Hawaii, early today and was moving west at 19 kmph. It was projected to gradually weaken while still remaining a hurricane over the next several days.
