HURRICANE IRMA: WE DROVE FOR MILES AND DIDN'T SEE ONE FPL CREW

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We just drove through Delray and central Boca Raton. We drove from Atlantic to Glades on Lyons Road, east to on Glades to the mall, south behind the mall to Boca Center, north on Military Trail to Yamato, then out to 441.

We didn’t see one FPL crew.

We saw incredible work by Boca PD and city works employees setting up stop signs, blocking downed wires and managing traffic flow (interesting observation — Boca PD has a white unmarked Toyota minivan with undercover lights), but otherwise saw nothing. Not a thing. Zip. Zero and Zilch when it comes to power restoration.

This is why there’s a dusk to dawn curfew. It’s just crazy out there… and FPL is making it worse.

We will effort publish the personal email and address of James Robo, the CEO of NextEra energy, tomorrow if there is no improvement. Perhaps he is unaware that much of Boca Raton and Delray remains without power following a minimal hurricane.

Tonight, expect the lights to remain out.
