TRAFFIC ALERT: OIL SPILL SHUTS PART OF KAMEHAMEHA HIGHWAY
We're following an oil spill in Central Oahu. Police have shut down Kamehameha Highway between Lanikuhana Avenue and Ka Uka Boulevard due to a spill about a quarter of a mile long. Crews are working to clean up the mess, along with back up from fire crews because of the hazards. Look for traffic updates every 10 minutes on Sunrise.
We're waking up to slick roads, not just because of that spill, but because of widespread showers. It should dry up by mid morning, then Dan also says the winds will pick up. That makes conditions prime for a Red Flag fire warning.
Teachers from at least four Oahu schools will take part in a "work to rule protest" today. Before and after school they'll picket instead of coaching or tutoring. They're frustrated by the failure to reach a contract deal with the State. Yesterday, talks resumed between the State and the Teachers Union.
BOARD OF REGENTS DISCUSS UH PRESIDENT'S FUTURE
The Board of Regents meets for a fourth time behind closed doors to discuss MRC Greenwood's future with UH today. This comes as we learn more about Greenwood's "demand letter" sent to the UH Regents last month, threatening a lawsuit and asking for 2 million dollars to resign. Greenwood offered to withdraw her demands in return for a vote of confidence from all 15 Regents. Sources tell Hawaii News Now that's impossible because she's lost support of a third of the Regents. We'll be at the meeting and bring you the developments.
