HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Power has been resoted to thousands of customers across in the Makiki and Punchbowl areas who were reported to be without power earlier Monday, according to a Hawaiian Electric Company spokesperson. 

The outage, which the spokesperson said affected 4,128 customers, extended to Nuuanu and Pauoa and included parts of Ward Avenue.

The outrage was caused by a tree trimmer who dropped a branch on a power line, the company said. Customers were switched onto another circuit.
