UPDATE: MECO reports that – as of 1:50 p.m. – power has been restored to all customers on Moloka’i.
Moloka’i has been a busy place for public and utility works of late. Yesterday workers at the Moloka’i central landfill discovered what appeared to be unexploded ordnance. Early this morning much of west Moloka’i lost electricity. Some residents there are still without power. And, in the last hour, parts of east Moloka’i have lost power.
Maui Electric Company crews are working to restore power to all of the island. No word on the cause of either outage.
