A power outage has forced the closure of the Honolulu District Court building on Alakea Street in Downtown Honolulu.

The state Judiciary said the electricity went out at about 2 p.m. and resulted in the evacuation of the courthouse known as Kauikeauoli Hale. Officials said the building should reopen Tuesday morning.

As a result of the outage, the Hawaii Supreme Court has issued an order extending — by one day — any Honolulu district court matter with a filing or hearing due date of February 14.

The state said any party whose case was scheduled during the afternoon calendar but who was unable to appear because of the outage, should call 538-5767 for civil cases or 538-5500 for traffic cases.
