POWER OUTAGE KNOCKS OUT TRAFFIC LIGHTS
Crews are working this morning to restore lights that are out in Wilson Tunnel at the top of the Likelike along with the surrounding street lights. Apparently, the outage is tied to an outage that knocked out power in Kalihi last night.

There will be beach closures in the area and a safety corridor around the pipe.
