Power coming back, residents return in Irma-battered Florida: Virtually all East Coast customers of the state’s biggest provider of power should have power restored by Sunday, and western customers will be fully up and running five days later, Florida Power & Light said Tuesday.

“What we’re seeing is encouraging, particularly on the west coast where our main transmission structures have not come down,” said Gould, whose company provides service to about half the state’s 10.5 million power accounts.
