Maui Electric crews have been busy in Central Maui this afternoon. In a 90-minute span, a large portion of Wailuku lost electrical power not once – but twice.
The first outage was around 2:45 p.m.. MECO had everyone back on within 30 minutes. But then – more flickering and a similar-sized outage cut the lights shortly after 4 p.m. This time electric order was restored within 15 minutes.
MECO expressed thanks for the patience of powerless customers – and has not released any details of the cause of the two blackouts.
