It’s official. The “Dark Side” of the Aloha State is the island of Kaua’i.
At least so far this year.
The entire island of Kaua’i suffered a total power blackout around midnight. Crews were able to restore power to all customers by 5:40 a.m. today, according to the Kaua’i Island Utility Cooperative’s Facebook page.
In an effort to make “light” of it (please pardon the pun), a post on their page at 5:40 a.m. read “…All customers restored at 5:40 a.m. Hope most of you folks slept through it but for those who didn’t, thanks for your understanding and Happy New Year. We’ll post something when we know the cause.”
