Helco: Outages Nearly Over

Hawaii Electric Company reported at 11 a.m. today that it had restored power to about 800 more customers, and that it was working on restoring power to  approximately 300 remaining households in  Nanawale, Leilani Estates, Ainaloa and “a few pocket outages in the Puna area.”  It expects to have power restored to all households “by tomorrow.”

A bulletin from Hawaii County Civil Defense this morning advised that some lower Puna a residents could expect continued outages “through this week” because of extensive damage caused by what it termed “last week’s wind event. ” The Pohoiki Road will be closed to local traffic only to allow for HELCO and other utility crews to work to restore lines and poles. Motorists are advised to exercise caution in the area and to use alternate routes if possible,”  it announced.
