FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT 4 P.M. REPORT

 MIAMI, March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Florida Power & Light Co. is issuing the following report on restoration efforts in the wake of the weekend storm, and a summary of FPL's system capacity situation.
 RESTORATION
 FPL expects to restore service to all but approximately 20,000 customer accounts in east-central and northeastern Florida by midnight tonight. A few scattered outages remain to be cleared up by midnight today elsewhere in the service territory.
 Areas not expected to be complete until Tuesday include Palatka, Sanford and Daytona Beach. Scattered outages will also remain after midnight in the St. Augustine, Port Orange and Flagler areas of northeastern Florida.
 Crews from restored locations have been reassigned to the remaining heavily damaged areas in northeast Florida.
 Some FPL customers have asked the utility to remove fallen trees and foliage from their property. However, FPL cannot provide this service during emergency restoration efforts. In FPL's experience, local governments will -- with possibly a few exceptions -- collect post-storm tree debris if residents deposit it along the street right- of-way.
 FPL SYSTEM CAPACITY
 Thanks to special conservation efforts by customers this morning, FPL had adequate generating capacity to meet customers' needs. It was NOT necessary for the utility to implement rotating blackouts today.
 Peak demand of 12,932 megawatts (note: revised from this morning's preliminary report after audit) occurred between 7 and 8 a.m today. Demand decreased as temperatures rose.
 With continued warming, FPL has adequate generating capacity. FPL began its pre-arranged load control of participating residential and business customers at 6 a.m. and discontinued it at 9 a.m. today.
