Hurricane Henriette and Tropical Storm Gil Churn in Pacific Far From Land (For Now)
With Hurricane season in full swing, meteorologists are tracking two of the seasons first storms.
Tropical storm Henriette was upgraded to a Hurricane on Tuesday as winds increased to almost 75 miles per hour. But Henriette still remains far out in the Pacific and won't get anywhere near land until the weekend. The storm could weaken by then, mitigating the damage it might do to the closest land mass, Hawaii. Currently, no weather advisories have been posted.
Gil, a tropical storm with winds up to 35 miles per hour is also churning in the Pacific about 1000 miles away from Hilo, Hawaii. The impact of the weaker storm will likely be felt less on land than the more powerful Henriette.
