More Rain, WikiLeaks Appeal, Playing With Danger

Looks like it could be another wet morning and scattered heavy showers could linger through Friday. Maui and the Big Island's windward sides are the areas most likely to get swamped. Dan will be monitoring the severe weather threat very closely and you can too. Just download our Hawaii News Now app to your smart phone so you have your own radar on the go.

Happening today: nearly seven decades after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Congress will honor Japanese-American military units that helped the United States win World War II. About 19,000 Japanese Americans served in the three units that will be awarded the Congressional Gold Medal: the 100th Infantry Battalion, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the Military Intelligence Service. We'll show you the ceremony live on Sunrise. We expect it to start around 5 a.m.

Hawaii residents will get a sneak peek at local business's and innovations that will be showcased during APEC. The displays will be set up at Ala Moana Center. This morning on Sunrise we'll go "across the aisle" about the impact of APEC and the rush to make improvements ahead of the world summit.

Breaking this morning... WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has lost his appeal against extradition to Sweden to answer sex crime allegations.

We just learned about a new high-tech tool that will soon be available to help detect melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. The Food and Drug Administration today approved a first-of-its-kind device, called MelaFind, that makes detailed, digital images of skin growths and uses a computer to analyze them, offering a sort of second opinion to dermatologists.

Also, a first look at what I found for my investigation into playground hazards. You can see some of the problems for yourself on our website and watch my special report "Playing with Danger" tonight at 5 & 10.

Hope you can join us for Sunrise.

Aloha,

Tannya
