A power outage in the Whitmore Village area left about 1,290 customers without electricity early Friday morning.
A broken insulator on an overhead line is blamed for the outage, which began at about 1:20 a.m., a Hawaiian Electric Co. spokeswoman said.
Crews restored power to some customers by 3 a.m., leaving about 950 customers without electricity.
Power was restored to all but 3 customers by 5:15 a.m. Those customers were expected to have their electricity restored by 6:15 a.m.
