HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The news doesn’t stop for anyone — not even the people who deliver it.

That’s why on Monday evening, viewers noticed a very different look to HNN’s broadcasts.

Why were the anchors standing in front of a truck with a large Hawaii News Now decal on it?

It all started about 11 a.m., when HNN was evacuated along with other businesses in Kalihi Kai after a contractor for the city struck a gas line along Waiakamilo Road.

A strong gas smell permeated the area and it was clear a fix was hours away.

So HNN got to work — preparing to deliver the news from its nearby warehouse. Producers, reporters and others used laptops to put together their shows.

The evening news wasn’t on the usual set, but it did include the same high quality of reporting viewers are used to.
