Pukalani outage caused by tree

About 2,700 Pukalani customers were left without power Tuesday night when a tree fell on power lines in a gulch near Kula Highway and Aapueo Parkway, Maui Electric Co. said.

The outage occurred at 10:12 p.m. with most customers getting their power back by 10:55 p.m., said Shayna Decker, MECO spokeswoman.

About 30 customers were brought back online at 8:08 a.m. Wednesday after crews hiked into the gulch to repair lines, she said.
