Kauai's north shore advised to conserve water

KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - There's an urgent call for water conservation on Kauai's north shore Wednesday night.

A power outage is affecting the water storage tanks serving Wainiha and Haena.

The county says the tanks are nearly empty.

All residents are asked to limit their water use to cooking, bathing and toilet flushing until those tanks are re-filled later Wednesday night.
