The Eddie may be a go tomorrow. Starting at 10 p.m. Wednesday, parking will be restricted along Kamehameha Highway on the north shore, and through the duration of the contest.

You may see big crowds Wednesday at the state capitol. Franklin Graham, son of televangelist Billy Graham, is holding a prayer rally on the front lawn at 1 p.m. Protestors are expected.

Honolulu police are asking for help finding Roland Na`auao. The 78 year old suffers from dementia. He was last seen leaving his apartment on Kalakaua Avenue on Tuesday morning.

Crews have begun demolishing part of the popular but illegal trail “Dead Man’s Catwalk” in East Honolulu. Officials are also working to reinforce fencing in the area to keep hikers out.
A traffic alert: A major repaving project is set to start up again on Beretania Street, from University Avenue to Alapai Street, near the main police station- weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The project’s expected to take four months to complete.

A news conference is set for Wednesday afternoon to learn more about the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau as organizers put the event on green alert. It’s still on stand by and contest officials will make the call Thursday morning.

Winds and waves still make it hard for boaters. A small craft advisory remains in effect until 6 a.m. Friday.

On Maui, there will be more emergency siren testing Wednesday in Kihei, Wailuku, and Kahului. Expect some noise from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A reminder: this is only a test, and there is no emergency.
