Ernesto Damage

The Sun-Sentinel:
Florida Power & Light Co. said Thursday that the peak number of power outages caused by Tropical Storm Ernesto was 21,522. This is higher than their earlier estimate of 17,800 customers without electricity.

Most of the customers left without power were located in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties.

FPL says it restored power to virtually all affected customers as of midnight Wednesday.
