Countdown To T-Day, Traffic Alert, Black Friday Deals

The Thanksgiving travel rush kicks into high gear today. 42 and a half million Americans are on the move via planes, trains, and automobiles. Ramsay Wharton will report live from Honolulu International airport to check on any delays and see what passengers think of some screening changes.

Work continues this morning on three water main breaks. Will crews be able to patch up the problems in Mililani and Hawaii Kai before the morning commute? Taizo will have the latest starting at 4:30 on Sunrise.

First, the Space Shuttle program was ditched. Could the elite Naval aviators the Blue Angels be next?

Hurricane Kenneth is quickly losing steam. Overnight, the storm was downgraded to a category 1. At this rate, Kenneth could be a tropical storm by Thanksgiving.

Here at home, it's a breezy Wednesday leading up to our Turkey day holiday. Dan will have our holiday forecast.

Chef Alan Wong puts a twist on Thanksgiving favorites, using local produce. Try kabocha instead of yams, mashed taro instead of traditional potatoes for your family feast.

The Sunrise family has a Thanksgiving tradition of its own. Taizo fries up a turkey during the show. This year, there's a hilarious PSA featuring William Shatner that shows what can go wrong and we can't resist playing it for you.

Plus, a breakdown of Black Friday deals. Where should you go and when to get the best bargains?

And, one deal you won't find in any retail store. Did a wife really try to unload her lazy husband on craigslist?

All that plus Malika features another Cool School.

We're squeezing as much as possible into our newscast today because we'll have the Thanksgiving holiday off.

See you on Sunrise!
