Storm Neki Forms Near Hawaii, Expected To Turn Into Hurricane
Tropical storm Neki formed near Honolulu, Hawaii, and is expected to turn into a hurricane by tomorrow. Neki started off as a tropical depression 3C. It is expected Neki will pass close to the Johnston Island. More updates to follow here at NowPublic.
Tropical Depression 3C started as a group of unrelated thunderstorms that came together. To get to hurricane strength, it will first have to become a tropical storm.
Its name — 3C — is for the number of storms formed in the central Pacific, the "C" meaning central.
Only after it becomes a tropical storm will it be named. Then it will be called Neki.
"Steady strengthening is forecast during the next 24 hours," Tanabe said. "We've been monitoring this for several days now, and it's now strong enough for us to call it a tropical depression."
