Power outage hits during Academy Awards telecast


Some Kalihi and Makiki residents missed the end of the Academy Awards or woke up late because their alarms didn’t go off on time because of a power outage overnight.

Hawaiian Electric Co. spokeswoman Jan Miller said power lines went down at about 10:30 p.m. near Kui Place in Kalihi, cutting electricity to 1,100 customers in Kalihi and lower Makiki.

Power was restored to most customers by 11:20 p.m. But about 16 customers near Kui Place didn’t get their electricity restored until 2 a.m.

Miller said she did not know what caused the power lines to come down.
