Brief power outage hits part of Kapiolani area

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

 

Hawaiian Electric Co. restored power at 8:10 Tuesday to the Kapiolani area after small pockets of outages were reported from about 7:50 p.m.

The outages ran toward the downtown area of Kapiolani Boulevard where it meets King and South streets, said HECO spokesman Darren Pai.

Rather than a single solid blackout, the outages occurred in small pockets.

The outages included residential buildings, which in at least one people were trapped in an elevator; street and traffic lights including near Ala Moana Center and Magic Island.

HECO has not yet determined the cause of the outages, Pai said shortly after power was restored.

A power surge occurred briefly at Ala Moana Center, but businesses did not lose power and elevators and escalators continued to operate.
