Power outages in Broward unrelated to Hurricane Irma, FPL says

Power outages in Broward unrelated to Hurricane Irma, FPL says

More than 97 percent of residents impacted by the hurricane have had their service restored, according to the release.

LCEC said Friday morning that they've restored power to 97% of its customers, spread out among Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry, and Broward counties.

The remaining outages involve labor-intensive repairs: extensive tree or debris removal and pole, wire or transformer replacement. They have more than 1,000 team members working around-the-clock, working to restore power. The rest of the power outages are customers of municipal utilities or electric cooperatives. LCEC will dispatch crews to those affected areas as soon as possible, Ryan wrote.

"I can not thank our customers enough for their patience, support and understanding, particularly those who were without power the longest", said Eric Silagy, president and CEO of FPL. "Hurricane Irma was unprecedented by nearly every measure including its size and scope, destructive power and slow movement".
