BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com has learned that FPL sent too many crews to Houston and was largely unprepared for Hurricane Irma — despite FPL’s self-generated hype that it was standing by for the storm. Sources tell BocaNewsNow.com that it could actually be WEEKS before power is back on throughout much of Palm Beach County. We have learned very large portions of Delray and Boca Raton have not yet been examined by FPL reps.
As of 9:15pm Monday, 463,970 customers in Palm Beach County are without power. That is down from a peak of 686,890. Customers who filed outage reports online in the first minutes of the storm are still receiving notices that their outage report has not yet been addressed…nearly 48 hours later.
We have learned local municipal officials at the city and county level are, in a word, livid with FPL’s handling of Hurricane Irma.
