DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Delray Beach residents are legitimately fuming as FPL has not updated repair status at all for thousands of customers who lost power in the first moments of the storm. Filing outage reports in the 5am hour Sunday, many of the homeowners contacting BocaNewsNow.com are in newer communities with largely underground electric lines. While those lines inevitably come above ground at some point, it seems FPL’s modernization system is equivalent to putting hurricane windows on half of a house.
FPL’s status website shows no updates since this morning. Very few FPL crews have been seen in the quadrant that includes Atlantic to the north, Military Trail to the east, Clint Moore to the south and US 441 to the west.
Troubling in a storm that brought little more than tropical storm winds to the area.
FPL is part of NextEra Energy which boasts consolidated revenues of $16.2B. That’s B. As in Billion.
