Aloha! Here are some of the stories we're working on for Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30 on this Monday.
TSUNAMI DAMAGE REPORTS RISING
We have graphic pictures of some of the damage caused by Friday morning's tsunami. State Civil Defense crews are also canvassing the state looking into and documenting reported damage. It's appearing that the hardest hit area was along the Kona coast of the Big Island. Our Tim Sakahara will have a full report tonight at 5.
A, B, C? -- WHAT GRADE FOR CITY & STATE EMERGENCY OFFICIALS?
That's what we wanted to know and asked them to grade themselves following last week's tsunami here in Hawaii. We talked with the City Director for Emergency Management and the state's Civil Defense agency. That's coming up at 5:30.
TSUNAMI IMPACT AIR TRAVEL TO STATE
The terrible events in Japan are also affecting air travel here in Hawaii, particularly flights to and from Japan. Lisa Kubota reports on that part of the story tonight at 5.
And what would you do if a 700 pound dolphin jumped and landed in your boat? Or worse yet -- landed on you?! The amazing video tonight at 5.
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!
