Disaster Declaration, Oahu Floods, Super Tuesday

 

Good afternoon from Hawaii News Now. It's been another heavy day of rain for the state -- and the problems continue to mount. Here are just some of the stories we're working on for our 5 and 5:30 newscasts today:  

GOV. SIGNS DISASTER DECLARATION AMIDST FLOODING ON OAHU, KAUAI 
Folks on the East side of Oahu -- particularly Niu Valley, Aina Haina and Wailupe -- are dealing with flood conditions, due to the heavy rainfall. Keoki Kerr reports live from the area at 5. And at 5:30,  Ramsay Wharton says it's also pretty bad for some Kapahulu residents living on Palani Avenue.

SEVERE WEATHER FOR KAUAI 
Things are also dire on Kauai, too. That island has taken the brunt of the wet weather since late last week. We'll update you with the very latest information at 5.  

CANDIDATES AWAIT SUPER TUESDAY RESULTS 
Over four hundred delegates are at stake in today's 'Super Tuesday' contests across the country. Anxiously awaiting the results: a pack of GOP presidential hopefuls. 

SUPER CAR UNVEILED FROM LAMBORGHINI 
No roof, no windshield -- no problem when it's a Lambo. Tonight, we'll show the super car for super car enthusiasts. Wait till you hear what the price tag is. 
     
   These are just some of the stories we'll have at 5 and 5:30. Stay dry, stay safe. See you then! 

Aloha,
