How is this an HSU or an HSU-coordination issue?  Shouldn’t CPHC be responsible for setting their own PILs?

According to Senior Hurricane Specialist Mike Brennan, there is no easy way to automate this, because the storm bin number often changes when a system moves into the Central Pacific basin - it's always given the next bin number in CPHC's rotation. HSU and CPHC's forecasters will need to coordinate more closely during basin-crossing/storm-handoff situations.
