LCEC Restoration Update – Oct. 10 – 7 a.m.

October 10, 2022 - Crews made good progress yesterday working to restore power to the remaining customers out of power. A harsh lightning storm last evening knocked out power to pockets of customer who had previously been restored and crews will return to restore power at those locations today.

Just over 11,000 customers in Cape Coral remain without power.

Just over 8,000 customers in North Fort Myers remain without power.

The remaining customers are the most difficult in terms of getting large numbers of customer restored at a time. There is typically more damage, debris, or vegetation only impacting a few customers or an individual customer.

Customers out of power at this time are urged to inspect and make repairs any damage to their home electric system if needed so they are able to receive power when restoration crews reach their area. Visit the LCEC Hurricane Guide to learn more.

LCEC reminds customers to stay away from downed power lines, turn off breakers until power is restored, and use generators safely to protect themselves and crews working on lines in their neighborhood.
