Tropical storm Debby strengthens in Atlantic but is expected to weaken soon


Hurricane Hector is tracking for a close call with Hawaii's Big Island, parts of which are still coping with destruction from the ongoing eruption of the Kilauea volcano.

The storm was centered about 1,160 miles (1,870 kilometers) west of the Azores and was moving north near 16 mph (26 kph). However, tropical-storm-force winds and pounding, unsafe surf are possible late Tuesday and Wednesday.

Swells from Hector will produce surf heights from 12 to 15 feet on east-facing shores mainly for the Puna and Kau districts of the Big Island Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

India will now look to bounce back when they take on England in the second match of the series, beginning August 9 at the Lord's. Anderson recoils from the impact, whilst Broad can be heard to exclaim, "Oh no!"

"A few heavier showers are possible in the east and north on Friday morning, but the overall trend of the day is for the showers to ease from the south, becoming increasingly isolated during the afternoon". "There is a reasonable chance that Hector will survive to cross the International Date Line early next week", said AccuWeather meteorologist Steve Travis.

"Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour [65 km/h] with higher gusts".

The active season in the Pacific contrasts to the relatively quiet season in the Atlantic.

No date yet for the previously announced retaliatory tariffs on $16 billion in US goods, which will largely target commodities. In April, the administration had announced plans to slap tariffs on 1,333 Chinese product lines worth $50 billion a year.

Another tropical storm farther out in the Pacific and one in the northern Atlantic posed no threats to land.

Subtropical storm Debby has officially formed in the deep Atlantic.

According to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, the center of the storm was located about 470 miles east-southeast of Hilo, or about 665 miles east-southeast of Honolulu.
