Power Restored to 4.8 Million Floridians Impacted by Hurricane Irma

More than 6.2 million Florida homes and businesses are now without power after Hurricane Irma barreled through the state, according the state's emergency management division.

About 1.5 million homes and businesses in Florida and Georgia remained without power on Friday after Hurricane Irma, including 46 of Florida's almost 700 nursing homes caught in the deadly storm's path.

Fewer than 363,000 Georgia Power and Electric Member Corp. customers remained without electricity Wednesday night. The company said it had already restored service to almost 1.8 million customers.

FPL estimates that it will have restored power to essentially all of its customers along the East Coast service territory by the end of this coming weekend, and for its customers along its West Coast service territory by end of day September 22, with the possible exception of areas impacted by tornadoes, severe flooding and other sections of severe damage. However, FPL, said on Tuesday that would restore power to eastern Florida by this weekend, and to western Florida by Sept 22.

Tens of thousands of customers in Pinellas County on the state's west coast still don't have electricity as well.

The nursing home didn't experience a full-blown outage during the storm, but it did lose a transformer that powered its air conditioning.

"Unfortunately, there has been false information spread that FPL will reimburse customers for food losses as a result of Hurricane Irma".

Eric Silagy, chief executive of Florida Power & Light, said Irma caused the most widespread damage in the company's history. Customers were supposed to be able to report an outage, and receive an estimate of when power might be restored.

Florida post-Irma recovery picks up momentum, but dangers persist
Eight people died and 145 patients had to be moved out of the stifling-hot facility, many of them on stretchers or in wheelchairs. Older people can be more susceptible to heat because their bodies do not adjust to temperatures as well as young people.
