Port LaBelle Electric Out

PORT LABELLE, FL. (May 7, 2006) -- Electric in the Port LaBelle area went
out early this morning. The area has suffered abnormal amounts of electrical
outages for many years and this morning's episode began at about 4:45 a.m.
and lasted almost an hour. Florida Power and Light is the electric utility
for most of Hendry county and recently has made some equipment upgrades to
switches in the Port LaBelle area north of SR80, after numerous complaints
to the Florida Public Service Commission by area customers. The giant
utility company has mostly ignored customer complaints about poor service
until the PSC gets involved. See for
FPL problems.
