Power has been restored to customers on the north shore of Kauai, just about an hour after it was cut due to an electrical fault.
The Kauai Island Utility Cooperative said power should be restored to all north shore residents after a troubleshooter was able to locate and close an open circuit on the transmission line in Wainiha. KIUC first reported a fault on their north shore transmission line shortly before 8 a.m., which affected Wainiha and Haena.
There was also a temporary power outage after 9 a.m. from Kalihiwai through Hanalei, which KIUC says should be resolved.
Troubleshooters had to hike in and locate the fault on foot, with limited equipment, according to KIUC spokeswoman Beth Tokioka, who thanked customers for their patience.
