Overnight Fire, Alaska Quake, LaRussa Retires

Breaking this morning, a fire at Joyful Gardens restaurant in Kaneohe that we've just learned was set on purpose. Ramsay will have live updates from the scene of the arson investigation.

We're waking up to some light showers, but it's looking better for trick or treaters tonight. Drier conditions are expected today, however we can't rule out isolated heavy showers. Dan will keep us up to date with weather updates every ten minutes. If you want to avoid the rainfall while you are trick-or-treating, download the Hawaii News Now app so you can take the radar with you.

A small earthquake that hit near the Rat Islands overnight is too small to trigger a tsunami for Alaska and poses no threat to Hawaii according to the Pacific Tsunami Center.

We're tracking that massive snow storm in the Northeast that's causing a headache for travelers on roads, rails, and in the air. Passengers on one flight were forced to sit on the tarmac in Connecticut for more than 7 hours in the height of the storm with no food, water, or bathrooms!

The St. Louis Cardinals' Manager Tony LaRussa has just announced his retirement.

A few other note worthy things happening today: the Makaha Resort and Spa in West Oahu will close, at least temporarily, we'll learn the results of a strike authorization vote by IBEW union workers for Hawaiian Telecom, and 60 Hawaii heroes will be presented with the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Hope you can join us this morning for Sunrise.
