Georgia Power offers update on state-wide outages

However, the state's largest utility, FPL, said on Tuesday that would restore power to eastern Florida by this weekend, and to western Florida by Sept 22. The Utility says customers should expect to have it by end of day Sunday.

"We have an army of restoration workers that continue to be aggressively restoring power throughout our service territory", Rob Gould, FPL vice president and chief communications officer, said in a briefing Saturday afternoon. Call 911 for life-threatening emergencies.

Hurricane Irma left an electricity void across much of Florida - and the effects have been horrific for many.

As a result, many residential customers had to wait two or three days, or more, before their power was restored.

FPL has begun restoring power in multiple locations.

Outage Map - Housed within the Outage & Storm Center, Georgia Power's interactive Outage Map provides near real-time information, allowing users to see where outages are occurring across the state and track estimated restoration times.

Those numbers include 11,318 Georgia Power customers and 14,750 people who get service from one of the state's electric membership cooperatives.

Even when winds have subsided, conditions can be risky. If you come to an intersection with a non-working traffic signal, Florida law requires that you treat it as a four-way stop.

◦No trimming should be done near a power line. Never pull tree limbs off power lines yourself or enter areas with debris, downed trees or standing water as downed power lines may be buried in wreckage. On Monday, when most customers were without power, the storm weakened to a tropical depression. Be sure that ladders or scaffolds are far enough away so that you - and the ends of the tools you're using - stay at least 10 feet away from power lines.
