359,000 awaking without electricity after Hurricane Michael

The numbers of homes and businesses without power dipped only slightly overnight from a peak of 388,000 early Wednesday evening to 366,000 late Wednesday night to 359,000 early Thursday morning as the Florida Panhandle and other parts of the state awake from Hurricane Michaelís fury.

Bay County, where the storm came ashore mid-afternoon Thursday with 155 mph winds, remains the focal point of power outages, and at 6:04 a.m. Thursday 98 percent of the county, 114,925 customers, were without electricity, according to the latest report from the Florida Division of Emergency Management.

In Leon County, seated by Tallahassee, power outages spread overnight, and by morning 94,000 customers were without electricity, 66 percent of the county.

Virtually all of Jackson Countyís 26,000 homes and businesses, and virtually all of Calhoun Countyís 4,000 power grid customers were without electricity first thing Wednesday morning. Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, and Wakula counties also saw power outages across more than 90 percent of their homes and businesses.
