The Pacific Ocean storms 500 km north of Kauai heading south towards the Hawaiian Islands.
The storm will continue to intensify as it passes near the islands, before the storm returns to the east early Monday morning.
This storm, which moves rapidly, is likely to generate waves of 40 to 60 feet, which could be closer to the northern shores.
The National Weather Service in Honolulu said the waves could cause flooding on the north and west coasts late Saturday and Sunday.
The National Meteorological Service (NMD) reports severe impacts to the shoreline that could cause damage to coastal properties and infrastructure.
In addition, it is likely that the storm will produce winds up to 60 mph, which will result in power outages and collapse of trees.
