 FPL NEWS MEDIA SUMMARY
 MIAMI, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- FPL today released the following


comments by Bob Marshall, vice president-power distribution:
 FPL's restoration efforts in Dade County -- where 77,000 customer accounts (8 percent) remain out of service today (9/11) -- continue at a slow but steady pace. This is a reflection of the extremely difficult going our crews are experiencing in trying to clear and repair our facilities in heavily tree-covered rear easements and along streets where our lines have been severely damaged. In the areas below SW 168th street, most of our work involves rebuilding our distribution network from the ground up.
 An area by area breakdown of yesterday's progress shows:
 Southwest Dade County -- Approximately 2,000 customer accounts in
 the Coral Gables area remain out of service. We have moved up our
 estimated completion date for this area from 9/16 to Monday (9/14).
 Any customers outside of this area (north of SW 136 Street) should
 call FPL if they are without power.
 Southern Dade County:
 1. CORAL REEF area -- SW 136th Street to SW 168th Street, west of
 SW 92nd Avenue and U.S. 1, 54 percent restored. Approximately
 10,500 customer accounts out of service. Restoration projected
 to be complete by Tuesday (9/15).
 2. SUNILAND area -- Kendall Drive south to SW 168th Street, east of
 SW 92nd Ave, 52 percent restored. Approximately 9,300 customer
 accounts remain out of service. Restoration now projected to be
 complete by 9/19 -- three days sooner than our previous estimate
 of 9/22.
 3. PERRINE area -- SW 168th Street to SW 208th Street, east of SW
 137th Avenue, 7 percent restored. Approximately 18,600 customer
 accounts out of service. Restoration projected for completion
 on or before the 7th of October.
 4. PRINCETON area -- SW 168th Street to SW 280th Street, 22 percent
 restored. Approximately 22,200 customer accounts out of
 service. Restoration projected for completion on or before the
 7th of October.
 5. HOMESTEAD/FLORIDA CITY areas -- SW 280th Street to Monroe
 County, 5 percent restored. Approximately 14,400 customer
