Hurricane HQ: Dora triggers High Wind Alerts in Hawaii, while Eugene triggers Hurricane Warnings to Baja California

Major Hurricane Dora continues to trek through the Pacific. And while the hurricane is expected to stay well south of Hawaii, forecasters have issued High Wind Watches for the Hawaiian Islands

"The gradient between high pressure north of the main Hawaiian Islands and Hurricane Dora passing safely south of the islands may drive very strong and gusty easterly winds across the area in the coming days," the NHC said.

Further east, Eugene continues to pull away from Baja California coast but has triggered Hurricane Warnings because of wave heights reaching up to 18 feet in the Eastern Pacific.
