HONOLULU (AP) - Officials say that a computer system failure that affected hundreds of state employees has left no permanent damage.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports (https://bit.ly/1Qd3Mk7 ) that State Chief Information Officer Todd Nacapuy says the state’s mainframe was down Monday for nearly four hours because of a power failure caused during routine maintenance.

About 300 to 400 employees were affected by the intermittent power failures, but there were no reports of damage caused by the crash.

Monday’s temporary power failure marks the fourth time in the past six months that the state has struggled with infrastructural problems at the aging Kalanimoku Building. The facility houses several state agencies, including the Department of Accounting and General Services.

Officials say the computer system is in immediate need of an upgrade.
