Aloha, I hope this email finds you well. Here are some of the stories we're working on for Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30.
POWER LINES DOWN -- RESIDENTS & BUSINESSES SCRAMBLE
Its been a wild night of some crazy weather across the western part of the state. On Oahu, 15 Hawaiian Electric utility poles were knocked down along Fort Weaver Road in the stormy weather overnight. With power knocked out, that meant going into "survival mode" for some area residents and businesses. One man even dusted off his all-terrain motorcycle to get around. We'll have complete and continuing coverage the storm's aftermath, not only in Ewa, but across the state, tonight at 5.
LAWMAKERS SAY YES WITH CONFIRMATIONS
There were a bunch of confirmations today at the state Capitol. Who will be the state's new Adjutant General; the state's Comptroller for the Department of Accounting and General Services; and the new head of the Department of Public Safety? We'll tell you which Governor Abercrombie appointees were confirmed, tonight at 5.
SENATOR AKAKA's ANNOUNCEMENT -- WHO WILL RUN?
In studio tonight, Political Analyst, Richard Borecca, of our media partner, The Honolulu Star-Advertiser, will try and answer that question. Who he thinks will run away with the election for Akaka's seat once his term ends in 2012. That's tonight at 5:30.
I hope you'll join Stephanie Lum and me for these stories and more tonight on Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30.
See you then!
