• After the hurricane: Central Florida power outage information

    Updated:

    Many residents in Central Florida are in the dark as utility crews assess the damage caused by Hurricane Irma.

    While residents say they are frustrated, utility companies say their crews are working hard to safely restore power to thousands of homes.

    Channel 9 reporter Daralene Jones spent more than six hours Tuesday following Duke Energy and OUC crews throughout Orange County.

    Crews said the bottom line priority is to restore everybody's power as soon as they can, and that the worst case (scenario) is more than a week.

    Crews ran into downed lines and poles that must be removed from the road and trees that have to be untangled from connecting lines before complete restoration can happen.

    The priority for both Duke Energy and OUC is to restore power to neighborhoods with the largest outages numbers first, officials said.

    Crews said that repairing one feeder box was enough to restore power to more than 1,000 customers at once.
