What behavior of this hurricane would lead to advisories for the west coast and even parts of Canada and Alaska, when the hurricane is in the South?

I have little experience in meteorology or any of the earth sciences really, so I am interested in how this would affect the weather or other conditions far away from where the hurricane is severe.

enter image description hereIt seems like there is more than just a hurricane going on. According to the National Weather Service there are excessive heat advisories, gale warnings, etc.

    $\begingroup$ Thank you, I didn't realize this map included other types of advisories and warnings also. The areas on these maps match up perfectly, so I believe this is the answer. $\endgroup$
