Big Island Police Report Members of Public Confronting Electric Workers

The Hawaii Police Department has received information that members of the public have been confronting work crews from HELCO that are attempting to restore power to the lower Puna area.

HPDBadgeHELCO personnel, along with personnel from various County departments, are continuing to address the electrical power and road issues that were caused by Hurricane Iselle and will continue to do so until all roads are accessible and electricity has been restored to all island residents.

The police department asks residents to remain calm and be patient. Confrontations will only delay these personnel from accomplishing these goals. Mahalo

  1. Lets leave them alone and let them do their job people! They will get it done. But, they must follow some kind of rational, organized plan to get the job done. My power has been out since Thursday. I have 5 trees of my neighbors that fell into my yard. Three of these hit ny carport building, and are sitting there. One fell and is leaning on the tree next to it. Tree services are buried in work, as you can imagine. We have to be patient and help each other through this.
