When Will Hurricane Irma Hit Savannah, Georgia?

Power trucks and workers head out from Derby Lane, in St. Petersburg, Fla., Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017, into Pinellas County to restore power after Hurricane Irma.

"We understand what it means to be in the dark, " said Robert Gould, vice president and chief communications officer for Florida Power & Light, the state's largest utility.

Florida Public Counsel J.R. Kelly said that customer communications almost always fail in major storms.

"When you think of the incredible power of that storm, and while people unfortunately passed, it was such a small number", Trump said.

In Puerto Rico, the government announced 1 million people lost power from Irma.

He said: "Some 6.5 million Floridians, that is 62 per cent of the state, without power at this hour still and we are at the entrance here into really the only entrance way into the Florida Keys".

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.

Manager Redknapp leaves Birmingham
Redknapp came to St Andrews with three games left of last season, winning two to help the Blues fight off relegation. The veteran manager has been sacked by Birmingham City after just eight Championship games this season.

The state says it is working to restore power to assisted living facilities and nursing homes in the impacted areas. Georgia Power and Alabama Power are subsidiaries of Atlanta-based Southern Co.

"As CGEMC works hard to complete the restoration and repairs, they would like to thank customer-owners for their patience and understanding as restoration efforts continue", Jolley said. "That said, we train for this year-round and we are better prepared for hurricanes now than at any time in our company's history".

Everyone without electricity wants to know when power will be restored but utility companies report they are making progress Wednesday morning.

◦No trimming should be done near a power line.

With more than 350,000 Georgia Power customers still without power in Hurricane Irma's wake, the company said today that it hopes to have power restored to 95 percent of its customers by Sunday. Some three weeks after Harvey, at least 10,700 customers in that state remained without power. "About 70 people die every year and many more are injured from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by portable generators", the Consumer Product Safety Commission warns.

The number of Georgia homes and businesses without power dropped below 100,000 on Friday for the first time since Tropical Storm Irma roared into the state. Those main feeder lines, we go after and attack and get them up and running. The Turkey Point plant, located southwest of Miami, took a direct hit from Hurricane Andrew in 1992, a Category 5 storm, and sustained no damage, the company said.
