An electrical worker repairs stop lights the morning after Hurricane Irma swept through Naples, Fla., on September 11, 2017.
FPL says that between hurricanes Wilma and Irma, the company spent more than $3 billion hardening its power grid to prevent major damage from future hurricanes.
Florida Power and Light reported 28,360 customers were without electricity, while Lee County Electric Cooperative said about 9,968 of their customers in Lehigh Acres, North Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Pine Island and Sanibel remain without electricity.
As of Tuesday afternoon, 14,130 customers in Miami-Dade and 2,890 customers in Broward were without power.
Foxconn bill awaits Walker's signature after clearing Assembly The Senate approved the budget on a vote of 19-14, with all Republicans except David Craig from the town of Vernon supporting it.

First, FPL restores power to critical functions, like hospitals and 911 centers, and then to the most people in the shortest amount of time. On Sept. 11, when most customers were without power, the storm weakened to a tropical depression.
Georgia Power will not refuse to reconnect service to customers impacted by Hurricane Irma due to a past due bill and demand payment prior to reconnection. K-Line Construction based out of Woodstock also sent crews to the St. Petersburg area.
With Irma, the poles seemed to hold up well against the wind, he said. Georgia Power focuses on delivering world-class service to its customers every day and the company is consistently recognized by J.D. Power and Associates as an industry leader in customer satisfaction. Other people in the county lost everything.
