Power restored after utility pole goes down in Kalihi

Hawaiian Electric has restored power to all customers after an outage this morning that left several hundred without power in Kalihi.

The outage was caused by a downed pole fronting 750 Kohou St. at about 7:30 a.m. today, said Hawaiian Electric spokeswoman Shannon Tangonan.

About 415 customers were affected in the areas of Dillingham Boulevard, Kalihi Street, Kokea Street, Kohou Street and Mookaula Street.

Tangonan said power was restored to about 250 customers by 8:25 a.m. About a half-hour later, some five customers still remained without power and had to wait until further repairs were completed. Those customers had their power by 3:20 p.m. when emergency repairs were completed.

The outage also affected traffic lights in the area of the Dillingham Boulevard and Kalihi and McNeil streets. Honolulu firefighters also responded to the downed pole.
