Two hurricanes, one a Category 4, are moving toward Hawaii

Tropical Storm Erick is strengthening into a hurricane as it moves towards Hawaii. It has only gained strength due to the warm waters and low wind shear the Pacific has provided.

"Erick is moving toward the west near 18 miles per hour (30 km/h)".

The US National Hurricane Center said the storm was moving westwards across the eastern Pacific.

Hurricane Erick is expected to pass Hawaii on Friday. There are warnings for stronger tides that could hit the southern coast of the largest island along with some bands of rain, but the storm's heart is expected to miss the chain. There could also be some severe storms that roll through the area as well.

"Impacts such as higher surf, strong winds or heavy rainfall are possible even with this tropical system passing south of the Big Island", the National Weather Service in Honolulu told USA Today.

While Erick is expected to miss Hawaii, current tracking has Flossie hitting the island chain in some manner early next week, though it's still unclear how hard it could get hit.
