MAKAKILO, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Several customers in Makakilo are without water service on Tuesday morning due to an 8-inch main break as well as downed pumping stations, the Board of Water Supply said.

The 8-inch main break, reported at 4:30 a.m., happened on Akaula Street. However, BWS said storm-related power outages overnight affected pumping stations in the area.

Power has since been restored, so crews are working to get the pumps back online.

Repair work is expected to continue through the day.

A portion of Akaula Street, between Anipeahi Street and Mehani Street, is closed for repair work, BWS said.
