Coming Up on Hawaii News Now Thursday

Developing now: a Blue Hawaii tour helicopter with five people aboard crashed on Molokai today. Details are still coming into our newsroom, but we can confirm there are five fatalities. Minna Sugimoto will have the very latest information, starting at 5 tonight, including the connection between Maui mayor, Alan Arrack, and the helicopter's pilot.

World leaders began arriving today for the APEC meetings -- and if you were stuck in traffic, I'm sure you noticed. The arrivals caused a traffic nightmare for thousands of motorists. And get this -- the worst is not yet over. We'll have more from the Hawaii Convention Center and Teri Okita.

Also, with all eyes on Hawaii because of APEC, hundreds of union workers are Hawaiian Telcom hit the picket line today to protest the company's latest contract offer. But we do know when the workers will be back on the job.

And Guy Hagi has the forecast for the rest of the week and the weekend. I hope you'll join Stephanie Lum and me tonight on Hawaii News Now at 5, 5:30, 6 and 6:30...

See you then!
