linemen convoy

As out-of-town lineman trucks left town in two groups today (video: morning convoy via City of Lakeland | afternoon convoy via News 10), Lakeland Electric said all but 300 customers who lost power during Hurricane Irma have been restored.

Those that are left “require a reconnect due to storm damage to their service line, meter box or weatherhead,” the utility added. Lakeland Electric also said it is experiencing technical difficulties with its online outage map, which was showing 1,195 outages at 10:30 p.m.
