Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall in North Carolina on Thursday, with what one federal official calls a “Mike Tyson punch.”

But Florence isn’t the only hurricane forecasters are keeping an eye on. Monday was the height of the Atlantic hurricane season, and meteorologists are also keeping their eyes on the Pacific, where Hawaii is potentially in the path of Tropical Storm Olivia.
