As of  4 p.m. today, approximately 2,900 island residents, mostly  Puna and Ka’u,  remained without power, according to HELCO–and some can expect to remain without electricity for days.

The utility said it had restored power to 1,100 customers from North Kohala to Lower Puna since yesterday’s high winds, but some residents remained without power in in portions of Leilani Estates, Nanawale, Lanipuna, Hawaiian Paradise Park, Orchidland, Ainaloa, Hawaiian Beaches, Nanawale, Tangerine Acres, Leilani Estates, Fern Forest, Fern Acres, Hawaiian Acres, Eden Roc, Wood Valley, South Point, and Ahualoa.

“Due to extensive damage, customers in Hawaiian Beaches, Hawaiian Shores, Nanawale, Leilani Estates, and Lanipuna are advised to prepare for the possibility of extended outages through this week,” stated a message on the company’s Web site this evening.
