New estimated restoration time announced for Panama City Mall area
Gulf Power customers 95 percent restored in Washington County
With more than 78,000 customers restored, Gulf Power now has less than 47,000 customers without power. Almost all customers who are still without power, are located in the most storm-ravaged areas of Bay County.
Today, a new estimated restoration time of midnight, Oct. 21 was determined for the area north and west of Panama City Mall. Gulf Power crews, alongside thousands of restoration crew members, also recently restored power to 95 percent of customers in Washington County including Sunny Hills and Vernon, 18 hours ahead of the original estimate.
“As we continue to rebuild the harder hit areas, we see and feel the challenge for so many in these communities. We realize that just because we restore power to areas, not everyone’s lights will come on due to damage to homes and buildings,” Adrianne Collins, Gulf Power’s vice president of Power Delivery. “However, rebuilding the power grid is a first step toward recovery for families, businesses and the entire community. We are focused on delivering an unprecedented response to this unprecedented storm.”
