Re: South Florida

I was one of the lucky ones in Collier County! We had power and water by 5pm on Monday. Many of my co-workers are still without power. LCEC had to take all of Marco Island back down early on Friday - seems the strom deposited salt on the transformers and they started sparking and popping on Thursday night. The fire companies are washing all of them down before power can be restored. My office has limited power being supplemented by massive generators. Fortunately, water service was restored on Thursday - no more porta-potties! Yippee! The other great news was that curfews were lifted, so our employees can now travel safely to and from work. I'm going to check on a couple of our employees who lost their roofs later today. We'll be heading into downtown Naples for the first time. Stay safe everyone!
