It's far from a Happy Halloween in areas hit by the Superstorm Sandy, nicknamed "Frankenstorm." That's part of what we're following this morning on Sunrise.
Ravaged cities in the Northeast are coping with crippled infrastructure, waterlogged streets and buildings, and a blackout to millions. President Obama will visit New Jersey today to see firsthand the damage. We'll have live team coverage this morning with Dan Cooke tracking the severe weather, Howard breaking down economic effects and resumption of travel, and reports from correspondents covering Sandy.
By comparison, our own forecast is perfect for trick or treating. Whether you'll go door to door in your neighborhood, or check out the crowds at Lahaina's famous party, Dan says it's picture perfect. And, we've really enjoyed all the pictures of your costumes. Head to our special Halloween section to see what's happening around town, plus some of the creative costumes shared by our viewers.
HOT SPOTS TRICK OR TREATING
With all the little trick or treaters on the roads, you have to be extra safe. This morning, Jennifer Robbins will head out to Kaimuki High School for an important safety message.
