Good morning Sunrise viewers,
I'm sure you heard the rain last night. But we're not in the clear just yet. A flash flood watch remains in effect for Oahu, Kauai and Niihau at least through this afternoon. In the meantime, many residents are still trying to clean up. Yards were flooded and there are reports of dirty, brown water in the Hanalei River on Maui and in Kikiaola Boat Harbor on Kauai. Ben will have your full forecast when you tune in this morning.
New Year's celebrations can be a lot of fun, but there's also a lot of smoke and noise. Are you ready for it? If you suffer from asthma or any other health condition, listen up. The American Lung Association will be giving us some tips to help us ring in 2011 in a safe and enjoyable style.
Make sure to forward this e-mail to your family and friends, so we can add to our Sunrise Ohana. We also want to hear from YOU! So email us your comments and suggestions to Sunrise@HawaiiNewsNow.com.
You can catch all of these stories and segments streaming live online from 4:30 - 9:00 a.m. on HawaiiNewsNow.com or on KGMB, KHNL and on KFVE. If you missed one, watch it later on our website.
