By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:52 a.m. HST, Jun 02, 2013

A tree-trimming accident Saturday resulted in a loss of electricity for 827 Hawaiian Electric Co. customers in Sunset Beach.

According to HECO, falling tree limbs knocked down a power line on Ke Waena Road, resulting in a power outage that began at 11:11 a.m.

A HECO repair crew restored power at 1:46 p.m.

No injuries were reported.

HECO took the opportunity to remind the public that people should keep themselves as well as their tools, ladders and other equipment at least 10 feet from power lines.

The property that cause this accident should have their power turn off for a week. Or pay through your home/rental insurance for all the pain that they caused. The refill of emergency medical items that had to be used because of the homeowner's neglect. Gas for the emergency generator. ETC.... I know HECO is going to charge the homeowner insurance, I just want them to pay for all the people that was affected.

Power went out? We'll have to wait nine months to see what happens when the power goes out.

You don't have to wait nine months to find out what happens when the power goes out. I'll tell you right now. You won't have any electricity. So things like your lights, TV, refrigerator and anything else you plug into an electrical socket won't work. Yeah, it basically sucks. But at least your toilet will still flush.
