Over 30000 still without power in Manatee, Sarasota counties

Matt Sawhill, incoming Statesboro area manager for Georgia Power, emailed that he was "very happy to report that as of 3 p.m., all Georgia Power customers in Bulloch County that can receive power are getting power".

Hurricane Irma knocked out power to millions of Florida customers, including 9,600 in Palm Beach - essentially the entire town. LCEC will have crews in all parts of the service territory until all customers have been restored. Columbia County has 25 customers affected by 19 outages.

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.

Customers in areas who are still out of power, may have more localized damage to the infrastructure serving their specific location.

About Georgia Power Georgia Power is the largest electric subsidiary of Southern Company (NYSE: SO), America's premier energy company. Saturday she was told she would get power Sunday. 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.

The company is on target to restore power to all by Wednesday, McDermitt said, except in areas with flooding or extensive wind damage.

Power in Columbia, Duval, Hardee, Martin, Orange, Osceola and St. Lucie counties is 100 percent restored.

Restoration crews are safely restoring service as quickly as possible.

Haley: 'Plenty' of military options available for dealing with North Korea
That launch came less than two weeks after Pyongyang staged its most powerful nuclear test yet. Trump has threatened "fire and fury" in response to North Korea's threats.

But since then, FPL workers have run into challenges, forcing the company to push back the estimated time of full restoration to Tuesday. "I also want to thank the many community partners that continue to assist us in restoration efforts; without your support, the enormous task we face to restore power to almost 4.4 million customers would be even harder".

"It hazardous type of work, we do see some unique challenges", he said.

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 customers are angry and frustrated that we could not provide them better information".
