Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Today is Tuesday, 9/19/2017, the date FPL has committed to 'essentially' restore electric service in Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest and Cutler Bay. FPL's 7 AM restoration report.

Today, Tuesday, September 19 - the revised date that FPL has promised to restore power to all homes in Palmetto Bay (by 11:45 PM) - the only qualify being those homes that can safely accept power, that are not damaged in a way that FPL cannot reconnect.  A passionate Emergency Council meeting was held last night and many spoke of their issues before a packed house.

Many also spoke of having been notified of power restoration, and then returning home only to find they had a false restoration notice.

For those who don't have power, I ask that you confirm that your FPL 'ticket' still indicates that you are waiting for restoration. If you still do not have power, I need your full name and address so we can track your reconnect. Please e-mail me at eflinn@palmettobay-fl.gov with your account name, ticket number (closed or open) with phone number to reach you (if not by e-mail)

Thank you and please share!
