Power is now restored to about 730 customers who lost power in Kalihi because of two separate incidents along Dillingham Boulevard, a Hawaiian Electric Co. spokesman said.
A downed power line caused by an equipment failure near Waiakamilo Street and Dillingham Boulevard left 450 customers without power for much of Sunday afternoon, HECO spokesman Peter Rosegg said.
Power was restored to about 150 customers fairly quickly after the incident was reported around noon, while remaining customers were left without power until around 3:40 p.m., Rosegg said.
The cause of that the downed line was internal and is still being investigated.
Police closed lanes of Dillingham Boulevard because of the downed line.
A separate outage in the area, near Kohou Street and Dillingham Boulevard, briefly left about 280 customers without power, Rosegg said.
Rosegg said the outage was also caused by an equipment failure, but no lines were reported down. He said power was restored to those customers fairly quickly after the outage started around noon.
