Three tropical storms building in Pacific: NHC
by Staff Writers
Washington (AFP) July 23, 2016

A tropical storm over the Pacific is expected to hit parts of Hawaii as two more storms build toward hurricanes elsewhere in the Pacific, weather watchers in the United States said Friday.

Tropical Storm Darby was located some 450 miles (725 kilometers) southeast of Honolulu on Friday night, moving west around 12 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour, the Honolulu-based Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) said.

The agency has issued a tropical storm warning for Hawaii County and Maui County, which includes the islands of Maui, Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe.

Forecasters warn the storm could bring winds around 60 miles per hour, flooding rains and 15 to 25 foot (four to seven meter) surf to shore late Friday or early Saturday.

Further east, tropical Storm Frank is moving northwest off the Pacific coast of Mexico with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

The storm was located more than 260 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, on Friday, the agency said.

It is forecast to strengthen, possibly turning into a hurricane over the weekend.

Although Frank is not expected to make landfall, it could bring higher waves to the Mexican coast, the NHC said.

Another tropical storm, Georgette, which also formed over the east Pacific, was located nearly 900 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California with maximum sustained winds of 55 miles per hour on Friday evening, the NHC said.

That storm is also expected to strengthen over the weekend, possibly reaching hurricane strength overnight or Saturday. However, it remains no threat to the US mainland or Mexico, the agency said.
