As the tropical storm-force weather from Hurricane Idalia dissipates, LCEC utility workers and contractors continue to respond to scattered outages resulting from rain bands and wind gusts. Crews worked throughout the night and into Wednesday to restore the minimal outages experienced by LCEC members. The electric system held up extremely well to the heavy wind and rain.

LCEC reminds all Southwest Florida residents to continue practicing caution while driving, clearing debris and other storm-related activities. Our crews will be made available to other utilities in need as Hurricane Idalia continues its path through Florida.

Our thoughts are with all those affected by this storm, many of which are still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Ian in 2022.
