· FPL.com/powertracker is currently reporting outages directly resulting from Hurricane Irma. As we complete restoration, more outages may be reported by customers for three reasons:
o Weakened trees / loose connections: Customers may experience limited outages over the coming weeks and months due to weakened trees and branches that could impact power lines and electric equipment. In addition, significant wind speeds have loosened electrical connections throughout the system that can lead to increased outages following the storm. FPL crews will continue to make needed repairs as they are identified.
o Normal outages: Some of the outages in these areas are a result of normal, day-to-day activity and are not related to Irma. This includes for example, a car crashing into a pole, causing thousands of outages.
o Single customers out of service: these single outages were not initially identified as Irma-related outages. We’re identifying these individual customers as they report their outages and as our crews complete restoration of the neighborhood lines and identify them as still being out of service.
· More than 8,000 restoration workers are committed to restoring service for all customers in Miami-Dade county.
· Customers who live in an area where power is essentially restored, but do not currently have electricity, should report their outage at FPL.com/outage.
