At last check, about one million people in Georgia did not have power, while it's estimated half the state of Florida is in the dark and could be for the foreseeable future.

Crews from 30 states and Canada are in Florida or on the way to help restore the power.

As of Tuesday morning, the Electric Cooperatives report about 44,000 outages in the state's 46 counties.

Officials have warned it could take weeks for electricity to be fully restored.

Google has appealed a $2.4 billion fine from the EU
Meanwhile, last week, the EU's highest court backed Intel Corp.'s (INTC) appeal of a €1.06 billion antitrust fine from 2009. Spokesperson for the commission said it will defend its decision in court.

Most of the Missouri electric cooperatives will be sending a digger-derrick truck and a bucket truck to be prepared for anything they may find.

The task that lies ahead is big, he said, noting downed infrastructure can force crews to start from scratch and build anew. "Additional BWEMC crews will swapped out later if needed". But, Deputy City Manager Reese Goad say for now, crews are sheltering in place and are expected to start working again when it's safe.

"It is a huge commitment for these guys to be leaving their wives and children", he said. "Remaining crews at the co-op are more than capable of maintaining members' reliable service throughout Intercounty's territory during the absence of these six linemen", according to a statement late Monday by the cooperative.

The Indiana mutual aid program is coordinated by Indiana Electric Cooperatives' job training and safety department. "They represent us well with how hard, professionally and safely they work".
