On Thursday morning, FPL tweeted that all substations and 1,000 main power lines have been restored in Florida in the wake of Irma.
Hurricane Irma knocked out power to millions of Florida customers, including 9,600 in Palm Beach - essentially the entire town. They said it would take until September 22 to get electricity back to the majority of customers in southwest Florida. "People thought thousands and thousands of people may have their lives ended". Perry said 60,000 utility workers from USA and Canada are in the disaster area working to get power back on. Stanley Williams, 59, was crushed Monday when a tree fell on his home in suburban Sandy Springs, said Mark Gilbeau, an investigator for the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office.
"Unfortunately, there has been false information spread that FPL will reimburse customers for food losses as a result of Hurricane Irma".
Many residents are asking, waiting and wondering when exactly your power will come back on.
There have been reported cases of customers being asked to pay an extra fee for their power to be restored faster.

"I am going to aggressively demand answers on how this tragic event took place", Florida Governor Rick Scott said in a statement.
Meanwhile, roughly 6.4 million people in the state remained without power as of Wednesday afternoon, down from 13 million. Millions of people who fled Irma may struggle to return home for weeks as crews try to deal with downed lines, debris, and a storm-swamped electrical grid.
"We understand what it means to be in the dark, " said Robert Gould, vice president and chief communications officer for Florida Power & Light, the state's largest utility.
Standing in front of a produce cooler at a reopened Publix grocery store in Naples, Missy Sieber said the worst thing about not having electricity is not having air conditioning. On Monday, a home was destroyed when a generator caught on fire.
Tropical Storm Jose also is threatening to regain strength Friday and potentially could cause strong rip currents along the U.S. East Coast as it continues to make its way north in the Atlantic. "Our job is not finished until every customer is reconnected and we want to thank the millions of customers who depend on us for electric service every day for their patience during restoration".
