Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the storm's center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles.

The eye of the Category 2 storm was located about 1,375 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii, and 1,550 miles east of Honolulu, the NHC said in its 2 p.m. PDT update.

Hurricane Olivia, a storm with sustained winds of 85 miles per hour, is churning toward Hawaii and could affect the island chain as early as Tuesday evening.

Meanwhile closer to Hawaii, Tropical Storm Norman continued to move north-northwest away from the islands. "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 advisory was expected to remain in effect through 6 a.m. today.

"We're monitoring this storm closely and taking steps now to ensure that we're prepared for its impacts to the state".

That's because Florence will reach areas that have already experienced a lot of rain in recent weeks - and it won't take much for flash floods to start in these regions.

Tropical storms have a history of causing major damage in Hawaii.

The storm may be near the Hawaiian Islands late Tuesday, the center said, warning that tropical storm or hurricane watches could need to be issued Sunday. As NPR's Bill Chappell reported, the town of Mountain View on the Big Island recorded 51.53 inches of rain as a result of Lane, the third-highest total ever measured from a USA storm.

On the forecast track, Olivia will be approaching the main Hawaiian Islands later Tuesday and Tuesday night.
