West Coast once again is 2 hours ahead of us

If you're calling the mainland, be aware that daylight-saving time ended this morning at 2 a.m.

In most U.S. cities, people set their clocks back an hour overnight, which means there's now an hour less time difference between Hawaii and locations that are now on standard time.

Daylight-saving time returns the first Sunday in April.

Besides Hawaii, the change does not affect Arizona or the portions of Indiana in the Eastern time zone, which do not observe daylight time.

Kapiolani-Keeaumoku areas lose electricity

About 420 Hawaiian Electric Co. customers in the Kapiolani and Keeaumoku areas experienced a brief power outage yesterday, HECO spokesman Jose Dizon said.

A cable problem caused the seven-minute outage shortly after 10 a.m., Dizon said.

Honolulu Police briefly directed traffic at intersections affected by the outage, a police dispatcher said.
