Freeway Flooding, Lightning, More Severe Weather

FREEWAY FLOODING CLOSURES

We're waking up to severe weather on this Monday morning- heavy rain that has caused at least two freeway closures so far. Flooding at the School Street off ramp on the H1 westbound came on so fast, two lanes are completely under water. Also, eastbound by Waimalu, two lanes of traffic have been shut down to deal with swamping.  There's also flooding reported near the Middle Street tunnel. Sunrise will have team coverage starting at 4:30 this morning with Ramsay Wharton out tracking the effects of the Severe Weather and Dan Cooke watching which areas will get hit next.

FINAL PUSH FOR SUPER TUESDAY

The Republican Presidential hopefuls will fan out across the country today for their last full day of campaigning before Super Tuesday. Frontrunners Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum will focus on Ohio, while Newt Gingrich rests his candidacy on Southern support. Ron Paul predicts 3 wins in smaller caucus states, Alaska, North Dakota and Idaho.

DRIVER'S LICENSE CHANGES

Starting today, you will need more documentation to get your Driver's license. Your Social Security card and birth certificate or passport are now required. It will also take 2 months to receive your ID so your information can be double checked.
