Hawaiian Electric reports 300 customers remained without service as of 8 a.m. today.

Crews have worked throughout the week to restore power to more than 2,000 customers after power lines were damaged during the Kona Low storm. The outages were primarily in Kona and Puna Districts.

As of 10 a.m. today, crews are working in Kona and in upper and lower Puna. Full restoration is expected by noon Saturday, Dec. 11. This does not include customers who have damage on their property that would need to be repaired before crews can restore electricity.

Hawaiian Electric advises customers without power to ensure the service line to their home is properly attached. If the point of attachment is damaged, the customer must call an electrician. Click here for more information.
