A tornado touched down in the western portion of our service territory late last night as part of Tropical Storm Nestor. There are currently 1,380 customers without power. We estimate power will be restored to most customers today, but some of the more damaged areas will be restored tomorrow. More detailed information will come out throughout the day. Lakeland Electric has dispatched crews to restore power as quickly and safely as possible. Line crews are facing multiple broken poles, tree debris and many wires down as they assess and restore power. Mutual aid crews from Orlando Utility Commission have arrived this morning to help restore power to our community.
