• Tropical storm Guillermo gathers strength in Pacific

    Updated: 22 hr ago

    HONOLULU (AP) — A tropical storm churning in the Pacific is gathering strength and could turn into a hurricane as soon as Friday. Forecasters said Thursday that Tropical Storm Guillermo is 2,000 miles away from Hawaii and its winds are blowing at 60 mph. Meteorologist John Bravender of the National Weather Service says it's unclear whether the storm will hit or pass the Hawaiian islands. He says impacts from the storm could be felt in Hawaii in the middle of next week. Bravender says people should prepare as we head into August, which is the height of Hawaii's hurricane season. Forecasters say the 2015 hurricane season in the central Pacific region will see more storms than usual because of warmer ocean water.
