ORLANDO, FLORIDA (WKMG) – If you’re wondering when you’ll get your power back, you are not alone. More than half of Florida was without power after Hurricane Irma slashed through the Sunshine State.

Statewide Wednesday afternoon, about 3.5 million accounts were without power. Only nine of Florida’s 67 counties don’t have outages reported, according to the Florida Division of Emergency Management.

Rob Gould, vice president and chief communications officer for Florida Power & Light, said Wednesday that FPL expects to have power on for most customers along the state’s eastern coast by the end of this weekend, but other areas could take up to 10 days or more.

Gould said it would take until the end of Sept. 22 to restore power along the state’s western coast, where the damage was much more severe. He did say that some areas hit by tornadoes or flooding may take longer.
