BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.con) — Bright blue flashes in the distance for many have led to power outages this morning as Hureicane Irma’a bands affect South Palm Beach County. No official estimate yet from FPL, but expect power to be out for quite some time. Crews can’t work until winds die down, and that could take most of the day.
