Florida power outage map: How to check who has power

14 Septembre 2017

NASA on Friday released footage of hurricanes Jose and Irma as they appear from the International Space Station.

Those on the Florida's west coast, which took a stronger hit from Hurricane Irma, can expect electricity by September 22.

There are exceptions, FPL vice president and chief communications officer Rob Gould said Tuesday.

It may be weeks before some get their power back, because electrical systems in some areas may need rebuilding, FPL has warned.

FPL has advised customers against calling now and should call only if neighbors have power and they do not. FPL is receiving support from utilities and other companies from almost 30 states and Canada.

While it may be hard to sweat it out with no air-conditioning, refrigeration, lights or entertainment, Mauldin said the public should know that field workers were moving as swiftly as they could through the area. But when he checked the FPL site, it showed that his power had been restored and the outage had been fixed.

Gould asked for customers' patience and stressed that residents should be careful when moving about their neighborhoods, because downed power lines could cause injuries or even death.

It had been expected that Bradley would order an inquiry by the competition regulator on the grounds of media plurality. She could also attach conditions that would apply if 21st Century Fox wants to complete the deal.

As of 10 a.m. Tuesday in Miami-Dade, 648,970 customers had outages out of 1.1 million customers in total, according to FPL data.

FPL has installed new concrete poles, along with "hardened" wooden poles, as part of its $3 billion investment in the grid since 2006.

"What we think we'll see on the west coast is a wholesale rebuild of our electric grid", Gould said on Monday, ABC News reported.

"That's affected roughly 4.4 million customers", Gould said.

The company inspects its 1.2 million power poles every eight years and upgrades or replaces those that no longer meet the company's standards for strength.

The poles that have toppled over are down "as a result of trees off of our right of way coming down on the lines and pulling the poles down" and not because of the wind itself, he said.

By the end of Sunday, Duke said power should be restored to "essentially all" customers in Alachua, Bay, Brevard, Citrus, Columbia, Dixie, Flagler, Franklin, Gilchrist, Gulf, Hamilton, Hernando, Jefferson, Lafayette, Lake, Leon, Levy, Madison, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, Sumter, Suwannee, Taylor, Volusia and Wakulla counties. Treasure Coast residents must pick up the pieces and prevail.
