9/22/17 DEBRIS UPDATE: MAJOR STORM DEBRIS PICK-UP WILL BEGIN SATURDAY MORNING, SEPT 23RD.
9/21/17 FPL UPDATE: Although FPL has restored most service to the city, some customers may experience outages over the coming weeks and months due to weakened trees and branches that could fall, impacting power lines and electric equipment. In addition, salt contamination along the coast line and significant wind gusts, which may loosen some electrical connections, may lead to increased outages following the storm. Some customers have already experienced repeated outages since Irma struck due to these situations. In addition, FPL is identifying single outages that were not initially identified as outages related to Irma. They are identifying these individual customers as they report their ourtages and as their crews complete restoration of the neighborhood lines. IMPORTANT: IF YOU OR YOUR NEIGHBORS ARE WITHOUT POWER, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THESE SITUATIONS BE REPORTED TO FPL AT 1-800-4OUTAGE (1-800-468-8243)
FEMA will be at the Island Library, 5701 Marina Dr., Sat., Sept. 23 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
