Boaters Rescued, Remembering Makaha Sons' John Koko, Rain Delay


Fire crews raced to the rescue of two boaters off Sand Island overnight after their boat capsized. One of the men swam to shore to get help. It seems the pair just purchased the boat and this was a "test drive." Ramsay will have the latest live on Sunrise.


Roads in the Tampa Bay area are washed out and parts of Interstate 10 in north Florida are closed off because of flooding. It's not likely to let up for a few days. Tropical Storm Debby is moving at a snail's pace over the Gulf of Mexico. Up to two feet of rain could fall in some places. Dan Cooke is back this morning and will be tracking this severe weather.


Rainy weather has delayed a major move that will impact drivers on Oahu's North Shore. The delivery of parts for Hawaii's largest wind farm began early Monday morning, but the rest of the transport is on hold for a couple of days. The giant turbine pieces will be moved from Campbell Industrial Park during the next couple of months. The overnight transports will create some slowdowns for drivers.


Music fans are mourning John Kapualani Koko. The popular bassist and singer with the Makaha Sons died yesterday after suffering heart trouble. Fans are sharing their condolences and remembrances on our Facebook page. Billy V will have more on the loss to Hawaiian music and how fans are remembering him.

Hope you can join us this morning for Sunrise.
