FPL HURRICANE SUMMARY

 FPL HURRICANE SUMMARY
 MIAMI, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- On Day 21 of FPL's hurricane


restoration effort, the number of customer accounts without power has been reduced to approximately 62,000. FPL has restored approximately 96 percent of the 1.4 million customer accounts whose service was interrupted by Hurricane Andrew. All of the remaining homes and businesses are in south Dade County, where crews are faced with rebuilding most of the utility's electrical distribution network. On Saturday morning, FPL restored service to the Coral Gables area. Customers in the area who do not have power should call FPL at 305-442-8770.
 Thunderstorms that brought lightning and heavy rain during the weekend caused scattered outages in restored areas and hampered restoration in some areas still out of service because of the hurricane. Although bad weather could affect progress this week, the number of customers restored to service is expected to improve at a slow but steady rate.
 Following is a summary of the remaining areas to be restored:
 1. CORAL REEF area -- SW 136th Street to SW 168th Street, west of SW 92nd Avenue and U.S. 1, 66 percent restored. Approximately 7,800 customer accounts are out of service. Restoration is projected to be complete by the end of the day on Tuesday (9/15).
