LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Power crews are making even more progress on getting everyone hooked up again.

Around 7,000 customers remain without power, but LCEC says 208,000 have been restored so far.

Friday is the day LCEC said the majority of their customers would be up and running by the end of the day.   They have more than 1,000 team members working around-the-clock, working to restore power.

Customers remaining out of power should contact the LCEC automated phone line - 239-656-2300, if they are the only one remaining out of power in their area and they have not reported it.
