Maui Electric restores power to all customers in Maui County


Maui Electric Company has restored power to all customers in Maui County, according to an update issued this morning.

At midday yesterday, the company reported that crews had worked through Monday night and Tuesday morning to restore power to all but about 150 customers in small pockets in Kula, Haiku, Makawao, Wailuku and Kahului, where transformer damage or downed power lines exist.

At one point while Tropical Depression Flossie was crossing the county area, 9,800 customers were without power on Maui.

Maui Electric crews also worked in Hana to repair five poles and electrical lines that were brought down Monday during the height of Flossie’s heavy rains and thunderstorms. About 900 customers lost power in the area.
