Crews restore power to most of Lanai


    Damage from a recent storm is shown in this photo taken Sunday on the island of Lanai.

Crews in Lanai hope to restore power in the Manele area by tonight.

According to Maui Electric, power was restored to all 1,575 Lanai City residents early this morning but about 125 residents in Manele remain without electricity.

High winds damaged 19 utility poles on Lanai over the weekend, knocking out power to all 1,700 residents. The damaged poles were about 45- to 50-feet tall and repairs involved replacing all the poles, resetting new poles and restringing about a mile of lines along Kaumalapau Highway to Miki Basin and crossing to Manele Bay.
