Power to O'ahu expected back this evening

Advertiser Staff

Hawaiian Electric said it expects to restore power to O'ahu later this evening.

Lynne Unemori, HECO spokeswoman, said some customers may get their power back earlier, but she could not give an exact time.

HECO said the power outage caused by this morning's earthquake is islandwide for O'ahu.

The U.S. Geological Survey Web site was reporting three quakes, all centered in Kailua-Kona.

Hawaiian Electric crews will be working through the island of O'ahu, trying to assess and inspect for damage.
