Remaining Power Outages in Florida from Hurricane Nicole are Restored

All remaining power outages in Florida resulting from Hurricane Nicole were restored as of the evening of Nov. 11, the Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) reported.

Hurricane Nicole made landfall along the east coast of Florida this Wednesday as a very large Category 1 storm, knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of customers across the entire state.

“Florida public power utilities and our mutual aid partners from fellow public power communities had one goal in mind: restore power to each and every customer as quickly and safely as possible. They worked hard every hour of the day to restore the majority of outages as they occurred,” FMEA said.

Approximately half of Florida 32 public power communities were impacted by Nicole, FMEA Executive Director Amy Zubaly recently noted.

Instate crews, along with mutual aid crews from other public power utilities in Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Louisiana and Kentucky, have been working around the clock as long as conditions were safe to continue restoring power to customers.
