Almost a million Tampa Bay residents still without power after Irma

Power outages from Hurricane Irma dropped to over 6.6 million in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Alabama by late Tuesday morning from nearly 6.8 million earlier in the day, according to local utilities. However, FPL, said on Tuesday that would restore power to eastern Florida by this weekend, and to western Florida by Sept 22.

The crews will help with power restoration efforts. He said 19,500 electric workers have been deployed in the restoration effort.

In Georgia, utilities reported over 1.1 million customers without power Tuesday, down from a peak of around 1.3 million on Monday night. As ports began to reopen, queues of tanker trucks waited to be refilled.

Floridians who weathered the historic storm must now cope with an unprecedented loss of power: About 15 million people were without electricity across the state, the Department of Homeland Security said Tuesday.

To recover restoration costs, FPL files with state regulators and, if approved, adds a storm surcharge on the monthly bills of its almost 5 million customers.

The utility says more than 120 employees are departing Tuesday for Georgia, and more than 260 employees and contract workers will go to Florida to assist in recovery.
