Most of the almost 50,000 homes and businesses still without power in Palm Beach County will have electricity restored today and virtually all by Saturday, Florida Power & Light officials said Friday morning.
It may be several hours before FPL has an estimate for restoring power in the Treasure Coast.
FPL expects to restore power to all customers in Miami-Dade and Broward counties by the end of the day Friday.
“As we continue to make progress in South Florida, we will be collapsing our resources into the central and northern parts of our service area, aggressively attacking outages when and where it is safe to do so,” said Eric Silagy, president and chief executive officer of FPL. “We sincerely appreciate our customers’ patience and urge their continued safety, particularly around downed power lines. We have thousands of workers in the field and ready to work around the clock until every one of our customers has their power back on.”
About 624,000 of FPL’s 4.8 million customers have lost power and 214,000 have been restored.
