Hawaiian Electric crews are working to restore power to thousands of residents in Leeward and Central Oahu as well as the North Shore. 

At approximately noon on Thursday, about 6,300 customers from Mililani through Kahuku lost power. 

About an hour later, an outage was reported in the Makaha area, affecting nearly 2,400 customers.

Service has been restored to some customers, but no word yet on when repairs will be completed.
