Crews are still doing road work in Manoa this morning following a water main break on Kahawai Street. The road will remain closed between Lowrey Avenue and Huapala Street until crews have finished repairs to the road.

We're following a couple of Breaking stories... Iraqi officials say the death toll in a string of blasts targeting police in Baghdad has jumped to 23. Also, A Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a Detroit-bound plane for al-Qaida with a bomb in his underwear has suddenly pleaded guilty on the second day of his trial (Click Here To Read More).

At 5:11 a.m. on Sunrise we're going to be talking about Japan's plan to give away 10,000 free flights. 

And today we'll introduce you to Mai Tai the dog who is just so adorable that she helps heal patients at the Tripler Army Medical Center.

We hope you can join us. See you on Sunrise.
