(HILO) – Due to the anticipated impacts of Tropical Storm Flossie, Hawaii Electric Light Company offices will be closed on Monday, July 29, 2013. However, the company’s trouble line remains operational. Customers may call 969-6666 to report power outages and downed power lines.
Do not touch fallen or low hanging power lines or anything they may be in contact with. A seemingly harmless wire may still be energized. Stay clear of puddles where downed lines may have landed.
“The safety of our customers and employees is our top priority,” said President Jay Ignacio. “We encourage the community to monitor local television, radio and other media broadcasts for storm updates and the locations of open emergency shelters.”
The company will issue a news release when customer operations resume.
