WATER MAIN BREAK
You'll want to avoid Lusitana Street this morning between San Antonio and Bush Lane. There's been a water main break. We'll keep you updated on traffic hot spots on Sunrise.
WAIKIKI SAND & SHARK SIGHTING
We have good news and bad news this morning about Waikiki Beach. First, the good. The City assures us the sand replenishment project will wrap up today after 3 months trucking sand up and down the beach. Now, the bad. There are reports coming in about an "unconfirmed" shark sighting. We're hearing talk of a shark close to shore. On Sunday, divers came face to face with a shark at San Souci Beach. Since this latest sighting has not been confirmed, there are no beach closures planned and no warning signs. Ramsay is tracking the story live on Sunrise.
A truck went up in flames overnight on Waipio Uka Street and we have video of the charred vehicle. This comes just days after a parked van was torched near Aala park.
PRO BOWL PAU?
We knew that Hawaii could lose the Pro Bowl, but could the game go away altogether? New this morning, ESPN is reporting that the NFL is seriously considering scrapping the Pro Bowl. The NFL Commissioner threatened to do so after pathetic play at this year's game. However, many players have Pro Bowl incentives in their contracts, so it's still speculation at this point. Coincidentally, this news comes on the same day as the NFL draft.
Big international news. After nearly 5 years, the "Blood Diamond" warlord Charles Taylor has been found guilty of crimes against humanity including aiding rebels who raped, killed and mutilated civilians. He helped to plan a bloody civil war in Sierra Leone that killed as many as fifty-thousand people.
