Hawaiian Electric restored power this evening to nearly 2,000 Leeward Oahu customers.
The morning’s outage affected customers in Barbers Point, Ewa, Ewa Beach, Honouliuli, Kalaeloa, Kapolei, Ko Olina and Makakilo.
The cause of the outage was a cable fault, according to spokeswoman Michelle Orian-Lau.
The power outage was initially reported at approximately 5:15 a.m., affecting more than 3,500 customers.
Power was later restored to some 1,500 customers after crews switched them to another circuit.
