The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday Guillermo is about 1,070 miles (1,725 kilometers) east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. The Category 2 hurricane had maximum sustained winds near 105 mph (165 kph).
There are currently no hazards affecting land, and no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
