Duke Energy Florida said today that at  2 p.m. it had approximately 57,000 customers experiencing power outages and more than 146,000 had been restored since Hermine began.

Additional crews are heading to west coastal Florida to focus on Pinellas County, where Duke has the highest concentration of customers, and the largest number of outages.

Duke, headquartered in St. Petersburg, has outages in 31 of the 35 counties in serves in Florida. More than 1,200 workers have been dispatched throughout the state.
