Work continues on a utility pole that was knocked over by a vehicle in Kahala Monday night, leaving about 175 customers in the dark.
The outage occurred when a vehicle collided with a utility pole on Kolohala Street around 10:30 p.m. Monday, according to Hawaiian Electric spokesman Darren Pai. Repair crews working through the night restored power to 150 customers by 1 a.m. and an additional 12 customers by 9 a.m., Pai said.
Replacement of the utility pole is expected to be finished around midday, after which the remaining customers should have their power restored, Pai said.
