Traffic was also stopped along Kalihi Street, after a power pole came crashing down onto several cars in a parking lot below.
A nearby transformer was also destroyed when the pole came down.
"I was walking up the street and saw the pole falling and the transformer exploding. It was lucky nobody got hurt," said Kalihi resident Bryson Koko`o.
The wind damage did leave many homes in Kalihi Valley in the dark. Hundreds of residents not have electricity because the downed line cut the power connections with other lines in the neighborhood.
