Henriette was previously categorized as a storm but now the status has changed because of the force of the wind. The new hurricane is expected to head northwest and then turn west. Fortunately, there is no more land on its path but only on Wednesday and Thursday it can be determined if the hurricane is on cooler waters.
At this time, no coastal warning was yet issued.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami is located Henriette at about 1,470 miles (2,365 kilometers) west – southwest of the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. The depression began Sunday at about 1,280 miles east-Southeast of Hilo, Hawaii.
It is generally accepted that the effects of a hurricane can span many hundreds of miles from the center.
The most three devastating hurricanes in the US history (ordered by the gravity of the produced damage) were: the Galveston, Texas Hurricane, in 1900; the Southeast Florida / Lake Okeechobee Hurricane, in 1928; the Hurricane Katrina, in 2005.
