Visits at the Waiawa Correctional Facility are cancelled for Saturday due to a power outage caused by a downed power line.

The cause was a car crash closed down Moanalua Road in both directions between Pali Momi St. and Honomanu St.

The pole was repaired at 12:20 p.m. and power restored to the correctional facility.

The Department of Public Safety has started putting out visitation cancellation notices through Facebook and Twitter in an effort to get the word out faster to people who are planning to come to the facility to visit a loved one.

Watch for these posts between 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. on the scheduled visitation day.
