A lightning strike on Sunday night resulted in equipment damage leaving Hawaii Public Radio listeners with no signal in Kailua-Kona.
Hawaii Public Radio sent an e-mail to supporters this afternoon, saying that stations 88.7 FM (HPR-1) and 95.7 FM (HPR-2), located in Hualalai, are off the air due to equipment damage. An engineer is flying to Hawaii island today to evaluate the damage. Updates can be found here.
HPR is also streamed online and via the HPR mobile app for Apple and Android devices.
“We apologize for the interruption in over-the-air service,” HPR said in the e-mail.
