Power has been restored to Kalihi residents and King Street was reopened at 7 p.m.

Police closed a portion of King Street in Kalihi in both directions at 3:15 p.m. today.

A motor vehicle accident at around 3 p.m. damaged a utility pole and prompted the closure from Mokauea Street to Factory Street.

Hawaiian Electric Company crews worked through the afternoon to repair the leaning utility pole that left about 980 customers without power today.

  • In sailing, it is called “weight/windage aloft”. Bad for boats and bad for utility poles. You can only hang up so much crap until a problem exists.

    Next threat: Hobron Lane and Kai’o’o. HawTel just installed a whole bunch of weight aloft. We lost the pole at 400 Hobron a couple of years ago. “Dog pee”.
    HUGE explosion when the PCB-cooled transformer hit the street.
