According to Florida Power and Light, all of their customers in the WPTV viewing area have their power restored.

Across Florida, about 61,310 FPL customers remain without power Tuesday night. A majority of those outages are in Collier, Lee and Miami-Dade counties.

FPL initially said all power would be restored on Sunday on the east coast, now they say a majority will be restored Tuesday.  Lake Worth utilities said all of their customers had power restored over the weekend. 

Fort Pierce Utilities Authority reported on its website Monday afternoon that 100% of its electric customers, who could safely connect, are connected.

The best way to find out when the power may be back is is to download the FPL app. It will require some basic information like your account number.

A "customer" can represent a household or business, so the number of people without power is higher. If you are affected, you can check FPL's Power Tracker to find out how widespread the outage is. You can also download FPL's mobile app to get updates.
