Lightning, Consumer Gadgets, and Swamp Romp Oh My!

We made it to Aloha Friday Sunrise Ohana and it looks like a nice weekend ahead!

LIGHTNING SHOW

Did you catch the lightning again last night? We did. We'll show you the dramatic new video on Sunrise.

WEEKEND WEATHER

Dan promises a "kinder, gentler" weekend. Dare I say "tradewinds?" We'll pin him down for our weekend forecast.

FIRE FLARES UP

While you were sleeping, fire crews had to return to the scene of yesterday's Alewa Heights fire. Why did they have to make a return trip?

GOVERNOR ABERCROMBIE WON'T MAKE CONFERENCE OF GOVERNORS

You'd naturally think Governor Abercrombie wouldn't miss the National Conference of Governors or chance to catch up with his longtime family friend President Barack Obama. So, why is he staying home?

SPECIAL REPORT: A SAFER SMOKE?

Smokers swear by electronic cigarettes. They look and taste like the real deal, they're cheaper, and for now, users get away with taking puffs in places where you can't light up conventional cigarettes. But, are they any safer? Medical professionals weigh in. My special report is coming up at 6:10 this morning.

'E' HOST GIULIANA RANCIC TALKS OSCAR FASHION

One of our favorite Sunrise guests is 'E' host Giuliana Rancic. She's never one to bite her tongue about stars or their style. Hear who she thinks will be a red carpet hit and a miss at the Oscars. Plus, why she fears she may end up on the Fashion Police's "worst Dressed" list this year.

SWAMP ROMP

It's one of the messiest traditions around. Sloshing through the swamps of K-Bay. Teams will tackle the muddy maze tomorrow and our Malika Dudley got a jump on the competition.

HOT CONSUMER ELECTRONICS

Are you a gadget girl like me or a boy who loves toys? See some award winning new consumer electronics this morning at 7:40.

SUNRISE FIELD TRIP

Steve and Taizo meet up with the 3rd grade class from Kaala Elementary School for a field trip to the Japanese Cultural Center. Oh boy, hope they behaved without supervision from Dan or me!

KAMEHAMEHA HOOLAULEA

If that's not enough to get you watching, we'll also have a preview of the Kamehameha Hoolaulea.

See you on Sunrise!

Aloha,

Tannya Joaquin
