Maugerville power company helps restore service in Irma-hit Florida

1.1 million in Florida still without power after Irma

"If we were to take time to have to remove the material, that would extend the restoration process and the length of time that customers are out of service", he said. More than 65 percent of customers in Collier, where Irma made landfall and inflicted the worst damage, are restored; FPL expects to be essentially complete September 22.

But Florida Power & Light crews were there, as they have been working around the clock to try to restore power.

Save a few severe situations, FPL announced that they would have power restored to the east coast of Florida by the end of the day Tuesday.

Nearly 1 million of the Atlanta utility's customers lost power during Monday's storm. "The issue is the wind toppling trees into our power lines and not only taking down lines but poles as well". As of 2 p.m. Saturday, 1,650 customers in Palm Beach were still without power, or 6 percent.

"This complaint is going to bring to light what FPL is all about", lawyer Gonzalo Dorta said at a news conference in South Miami-Dade today.

As of 8:51 a.m., in Sarasota County, FPL says 22,800 people without are still without power and 196,040 have been restored. It had restored power to 459,380 customers who were knocked out by Irma last week.

Dorta's colleague, John H. Ruiz, noted that FPL's allegedly lax storm-preparation methods "impact [ed] more than 4 million" FPL customers, thus meriting a class-action suit. "Our efforts are centered on getting the lights back on for our customers who have been without power the longest", Silagy said.
