Eight days after Hurricane Irma, Florida Power & Light hasn't restored electrical power to all of their customers.
The state's biggest electric company is responsible for about 3.6 million customers in both residential and commercial property. Some 204,000 were still without air conditioning in temperatures reaching the low 90s.
Power had not been restored for 11,240 in Miami-Dade and 1,990 in Broward. FPL spokeswoman Florencia Contesse said the outages were related to areas with fallen trees, fallen poles and rewiring that still needs to happen.
Jessica Fernandez is among the thousands of residents who want FPL to bury power lines to protect them from the wind and to avoid vegetation-related outages.
