Traffic Alerts, Hot & Sticky, Battleship Star Smackdown - Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL

Traffic Alerts, Hot & Sticky, Battleship Star Smackdown

UH is out for the year, but there are still some traffic alerts to pass on to you on this Monday morning.

TRAFFIC ALERT: WAIALAE AVENUE

Drivers headed near Sacred Hearts Academy & 5th Avenue should know about a traffic study happening all week long. This morning from 7 to 8 am, turns will be prohibited into Sacred Hearts in the Ewa-bound direction.

RAIL LANE CLOSURES

There will also be lane closures this week along Dillingham Boulevard from Mokauea Street to Kalihi Street and from Kokea Street to Kaaahi Street. More lane closures are scheduled from River Street to Halekauwila Street. It's due to the archaeological survey for the rail project.

SENIOR ARRESTED FOR SHOOTING

A 72 year old Big Island man has been arrested and faces attempted murder charges. Investigators say Joseph Amormino of Hawaiian Beaches shot a 55 year old woman and fired at another person in Panaewa. We're told the woman is at the hospital in stable condition.

FLOODING CLEAN UP AT HAWAII MEDICAL CENTER EAST

Clean up continues at Hawaii Medical Center East after a broken pipe flooded part of the hospital. It appeared to originate somewhere between the second and third floors last night, and cause problems below. No word if the damage is in the vacant area of the old hospital or in an area used by private doctors.

BATTLESHIP'S BROOKLYN DECKER

Model turned actress Brooklyn Decker's career keeps attracting her to Hawaii. First, she shot here for Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue. Then, she landed her first movie role starring opposite Adam Sandler on Maui for "Just Go With It." Now, she's here again for "battleship." This morning at 6:50 on Sunrise, we go one on one with Brooklyn. She'll talk about working with real heroes on the Mighty Mo and what she did in between filming that's illegal. Plus, why did Brooklyn talk smack about her co-star Rihanna? If you miss this report, you can see it later on HawaiiNewsNow.com.

BIG FINALES & DEBUTS

Big comings and goings on TV tonight. On KGMB, Hawaii Five-O's second season will come to a dramatic end. Daniel Dae Kim says it's the same action we've come to expect, but "on steroids." Before the Five-O finale, the 9th season of Two and a Half Men wraps up, the first with Ashton Kutcher on board. Over on KHNL, the buzz is about the new judge joining America's Got Talent. Shock jock Howard Stern makes his debut for the season premiere tonight.

HNN INVESIGATES CHANCELLOR CONTROVERSY

After the Hawaii Five-O finale, be sure to join us for Hawaii News Now at 10. Keoki Kerr investigates the big payout for the outgoing UH Chancellor when she leaves this summer, and the high paying UH job she'll start next year.

WEATHER NOW: HOT & STICKY

Hot and sticky are the weather words for today. Dan will let us know when the trade winds will be back.
