ROUND TWO OF SEVERE WEATHER FOR KAUAI?

Kauai could be soaked by a second round of rain today. We're also tracking breezy trades which have triggered a small craft advisory, and are making for messy surf. A bigger northwest swell is expected on Saturday.

POCKET POWER OUTAGE

A handful of Kailua families still don't have power near Kalaheo High School. The culprit? A brush fire that knocked out service last night.

Also today, City council will hear testimony that would extend the time lunch wagons could park from 15 minutes to 2 hours. And, starting at 10:30 this morning, there will be a march for meals. Lanakila Meals on Wheels wants to highlight the issue of senior hunger.
