HIGH SURF ADVISORY

Surfers had extra reasons to celebrate for the 4th of July. A nice south shore swell that's sticking around long after the last fireworks fizzled. A high surf advisory is in effect through today and a small craft advisory is posted through tomorrow. That means there's a potential for hazardous conditions.

DEVELOPING STORY: SEARCH FOR HIKER SWEPT OUT TO SEA

The Coast Guard will resume the search this morning for a 15 year old boy swept out to sea while hiking. The boy was in a tidal pool with a friend at the Big Island's Captain Cook monument when waves came up and swept them into the water. All the latest details ahead on Sunrise.

HAWAII KAI FIRE

The fireworks ban didn't prevent one Independence Day fire in Hawaii Kai. Investigators determined that a fire that destroyed a shed on farming property was intentionally set. It did about 13 hundred dollars damage.

FOURTH OF JULY FUN

Meanwhile, fireworks lit up the skies from Maunalua Bay to Magic Island to Schofield. We've posted some of your pictures on HawaiiNewsNow.com in a slideshow. Check it out.

SNAGS DURING MAINLAND CELEBRATIONS

Concert goers were briefly evacuated from the Boston Pops show last night due to severe weather. Luckily, the storm missed the city, but the rain started just as the fireworks started. San Diego's show had a different problem. A technical difficulty resulted in all of the fireworks being set off at the same time so it was one big bang. No injuries were reported.

Hope you can join Sunrise this morning. See you on TV!

Aloha,

Tannya Joaquin
