Hurricane Safety from HECO

The Hawaiian Electric Company is reminding people that if the state is struck by a powerful storm, electrical safety should not be taken for granted.

HECO is urging people to unplug all unnecessary electric equipment to protect against power surges. High winds can down power lines and people should stay away and assume that they are live.  If you see someone injured from a downed line, do not touch the victim, call 911 instead.

Should you need to evacuate, take your emergency supplies and turn off the electricity at the main breaker.  Finally, if you are trapped in an elevator, remain calm, and call for help. Do not try to force elevator doors to open or climb out of a stalled elevator. Darren Pai is the spokesman for Hawaii Electric Company.

Nick Yee’s passion for music developed at an early age, as he collected jazz and rock records pulled from dusty locations while growing up in both Southern California and Honolulu. In college he started DJing around Honolulu, playing Jazz and Bossa Nova sets at various lounges and clubs under the name dj mr.nick. He started to incorporate Downtempo, House and Breaks into his sets as his popularity grew, eventually getting DJ residences at different Chinatown locations. To this day, he is a fixture in the Honolulu underground club scene, where his live sets are famous for being able to link musical and cultural boundaries, starting mellow and building the audience into a frenzy while steering free of mainstream clichés.
