By the end of the day on Tuesday, FPL believes they have restored most of the power to northern Manatee County.

By the end of Wednesday, FPL said it expects to have southern Manatee County, Collier County, and part of Sarasota County’s power restored. The area is Sarasota they expect to have power by the end of Wednesday is north of Fruitville Road.

FPL says by the end of the day Friday, it expects to have power mostly restored to all of the rest of its customers in Charlotte, Desoto, Glades, Hendry, Highland, Lee and Sarasota counties.
