"Our focus is on restoring power to all of our customers, and we will not be moved by self-entitled politicians who are looking for someone to blame for the City's irresponsibly managed tree program". "All fines imposed to FPL would be donated to charity for Hurricane Irma disaster relief".

Lights are turning back on across the county four days after Tropical Storm Irma caused widespread power outages.

An FPL spokesman said there is a process in place for restoring residential power, adding elected officials do not receive a priority.

The deaths at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills stirred outrage at what many saw as a preventable tragedy, and heightened concerns about the vulnerability of the state's large elderly population amid widespread, lingering power outages.

Georgia Power will not refuse to reconnect service to customers impacted by Hurricane Irma due to a past due bill and demand payment prior to reconnection. As of Friday afternoon, Georgia Power is reporting just 57 customers in Clayton County were still waiting for their power to be restored.

As the devastating hurricane left millions of Floridians (as much as 40 percent) without power those who hope to turn to the lifeline of their renewable solar power installation to help get them up and running will be breaking the law.

"We are working day and night". "The issue is the wind toppling trees into our power lines and not only taking down lines but poles as well". Up to 80 percent of the flood damage to residential properties is not covered by any flood insurance, CoreLogic said.

FPL said restoration in Brevard, Broward, Clay, Flagler, Indian River, Okeechobee, Palm Beach, Seminole, St. Johns, Union and Volusia counties is 95% complete or higher.

FPL apologized to customers given misinformation.

Duke announced a self-imposed deadline of midnight Friday to restore power to thousands of customers, the Tampa Bay Times reports, but the utility missed the mark for many, sowing discontent in the sweltering post-storm heat. The lawyers also say FPL did not do almost enough to trim trees and keep lines reinforced in the days before Irma hit. These sites provide charging stations, water, Wi-Fi, ice, community service and restoration information, and customer service assistance.Visit: FPL.com/powertracker to see locations and times.
