Oceanic Time Warner, the incumbent cable provider on Hawaii’s Oahu, came through Sunday's earthquake with little damage, according to corporate officials.

The 6.6 earthquake off the coast of Hawaii caused various power outages and other damage on Oahu. But Time Warner spokeswoman Maureen Huff said the system has a disaster contingency plan and backup generators. By Monday morning, service was restored to 90% of its customers.

None of the company's employees was hurt, and the system's main fiber backbone came through the shaker fine, Huff added.
