The Latest on a power outage on the island of Kauai (all times local):

3:55 p.m.

A utility company says it has restored power to about 30% of its customers on Kauai, “and we continue efforts to restore power to remaining members.”

The Kauai Island Utility Cooperative says in its Facebook post Sunday that it is trying to determine the cause of the problem and expects that it will take at least two hours before power is restored.

Residents of the island, which has a population of about 72,000 people, say on social media that it appears much of the island is without power.

Kauai last had a major power outage in November 2018 because of a technical problem at the utility cooperative.

Kauai is at the northwest end of the Hawaiian islands.
