Power Tracker shows outages for residents
Florida Power & Light Company has launched the FPL Power Tracker, a new interactive online map that shows in near-real time the location of any power outages across the company’s 35-county service territory.
Customers can enter an address, city or zip code at http://www.FPLmaps.com to find out if there are any power outages currently affecting an area. If a customer is currently experiencing an outage, the resident can access the FPL Power Tracker map via a battery-powered laptop with Internet connection, most smartphones and Internet devices, or by asking a friend or family member to go online from another location.
The map mirrors the information provided to customers who call FPL’s customer care center and is based on data updated every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day. Clicking on an outage icon reveals detailed information, including status reports, causes of outages and an estimated time power will be restored.
The tracker also has a “storm mode” during the initial phases of restoration and will not display details for individual outages in affected counties. Instead, the map will provide regional updates in conjunction with the company’s four daily restoration reports.
