FPL Irma outages dwindle as lawsuit looms

Almost All Power Should Be Restored By Sunday According To Ga Power

Almost All Power Should Be Restored By Sunday According To Ga Power

It had restored power to 459,380 customers who were knocked out by Irma last week. "We know patience has worn thin and with the help of thousands of hardworking men and women from 30 states and Canada, we're working day and night to help our customers' lives return to normal".

"My mother is 72 years old in there, and if she dies of heat, I will be suing the [expletive] out of FPL and anyone under the sun who I can", Salazar said. Statewide, 6,436 customers remain without power due to 811 outages.

Mark Pieloch has given Florida Power & Light the use of his land surrounding the American Muscle Car Museum as a staging area for utility workers in Brevard from around the country working to restore power.

In the wake of a storm, power companies avoid saying that service has been restored to every customer location. Duval, Hardee, Orange and Osceola counties are 100 percent restored.

That leaves 2,210 Florida Power and Light customers waiting for their lights to come back on, according to the Florida Division of Emergency Management and FPL's Outage Map.

The out-of-state teams are able to sleep, eat and shower and do their laundry in trailers supplied by a vendor at 20 large staging areas, including the South Florida Fairgrounds in Palm Beach County.

85 percent of restoration is complete in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, DeSoto, Hendry, Lee and Glades counties.

Leishman backs up good start with a low score at BMW
The Australian world No.9 aced the 189-yard par-3 17th at Conway Farms in Chicago en route to a six-under-par 65 on Friday. Marc Leishman, a Virginia Beach resident, is 18 holes from a marquee victory on the PGA Tour .

This time, company officials said more than 50 percent of customers had power within 48 hours of Irma.

As for Syrock, he says he is expected to have power back by Monday.

"Our customers are angry and frustrated that we could not provide them better information".

Utility workers fix high-voltage power lines across from the Florida Keys Marathon International Airport in Marathon, Fla., on September 12, 2017.

However, for some, FPL efforts are still taking too long to reach them. Irma caused extensive damage across the state by knocking down trees that destroyed or damaged homes and knocked down power lines.

Irma, a maximally deadly Category 5 hurricane earlier in the Caribbean and still a major hurricane when it struck Florida, had declined to tropical storm status when its center passed through southwestern Georgia.
