Hurricane Douglas became the first hurricane of the 2020 eastern Pacific season when it whipped up winds of 74 mph Wednesday.
It’s a late start for the region’s hurricane season — according to the National Hurricane Center, or NHC, Hurricane Douglas is among the latest first hurricanes.
Douglas, now a major hurricane with sustained winds up to 120 mph, is projected to weaken as it closes in on the Hawaiian Islands. According to the NHC, there is a strong chance that strong winds and heavy rainfall could affect parts of Hawaii beginning Sunday.
