Nearly 3,000 homes and businesses in Manoa Valley through Makiki near Punahou School were without power for more than two hours Sunday night and this morning because of high winds.

A high wind advisory for all islands lapsed Monday night, but a wind warning remained in effect this morning for Haleakala on Maui and Hawaii island summits with easterly winds between 20 and 35 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph.

The Honolulu Fire Department reported Monday that the only major wind-related incident happened Sunday morning when a building in Kalihi Valley lost part of its roof.

Jan Miller, Hawaiian Electric Co. spokeswoman, said the Manoa power outages began at 11:45 p.m. Sunday, with restoration to all customers by 2:15 a.m. today.
