I live in Victoria park, Fort Lauderdale and have had a power outage for 30 seconds - two minutes 1-2 times per day for the last two weeks. Prior to that it was an average of 3 times per week. This is absolutely horrible, FP&L what is going on?! Worst service ever!

Victoria Park, Ft Lauderdale — We had power outage every day in the last week, during the day or at night, for 1-5 mins. When it comes on, sometimes there are huge power spikes that cause electronics to damage (eg: parts in AC units to break).

33311; Power went out 1am it’s 7:10pm. November 9 2020. This is one disadvantage of living in Florida. It’s November why are we getting tropical storm ?? I’m glad I’m moving to SC
