Thousands of South Florida residents were without power Sunday and Monday as the area felt the effects of Tropical Storm Eta.

As of 3 p.m. Monday, there were about 39,000 reported outages in the state, including Miami-Dade County and Broward County, according to Florida Power & Light.

Due to Tropical Storm Eta, FPL said they cannot provide specific estimated times of restoration for some areas.

The company said power had been restored to about 300,000 customers, with a restoration workforce of about 12,000 working around the clock to restore power.

“Our restoration workforce of 12,000 worked all night in between bands of severe weather to restore service and won’t stop working until every last customer is restored,” said Eric Silagy, president and CEO of FPL. “We experienced the worst effects of the storm last night and early this morning. Eta has cleared the region and our crews are now working neighborhood to neighborhood to get the lights back on for our customers. We’re also seeing some areas that are severely flooded and it will take longer to restore those outages.”

The organization is asking the public to exercise social distancing rules as their crews work to restore power.
