Mom Worries About Diabetic Teen Son Amid Irma Power Outage

Irma to Test Florida Utility's $3 Billion of Power-Grid Upgrades

Fort Lauderdale and New York (Reuters) - When more than 7.4 million homes and businesses are without power after a hurricane, utility workers tend to get noticed a bit more than usual.

In the Tampa Bay area, almost 550,000 Duke Energy customers and more than 280,000 TECO customers remain without power. FPL said on Tuesday it planned to restore power to eastern Florida by this weekend and to western Florida by September 22.

But, she wants her children to pursue passions by their own volition, and the same goes for their interest in social advocacy. Angelina Jolie brought her entire brood with her to the Toronto International Film Festival .

FPL said on Wednesday it had provided power to some parts of a nursing home where people died after the facility lost electricity during Irma and that the home was not on a list "critical facilities" prioritized for emergency power restoration.

That's what Gus Beyersdorf, 40, and his colleague Nick Jensen, 32, utility workers from Wisconsin, found out while inspecting power lines in Florida on Monday. The company has restored power to about 1 million customers so far but CEO Eric Silagy said Monday that "people need to be prepared for some prolonged and extended outages". That was down from a peak over 1.4 million on Monday night. Some homes and businesses could be without power for weeks, especially in the hardest-hit areas like southwest Florida, the NextEra Energy Inc unit said.

A South Florida mother is anxious about her teen son amid a power outage caused by Hurricane Irma.

Florida outages for Duke Energy Corp, which serves the northern and central parts of the state, held at around 1.2 million, according to the company's website, and Duke's outages in North and SC eased below a peak of 160,000. Other big power utilities in Florida are units of Emera Inc and Southern Co, which also operates the biggest electric companies in Georgia and Alabama.

FPL said its two nuclear plants were safe.
