KISSIMMEE, Fla., August 27, 11:00 a.m. – Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) crews continued work on Friday to restore power to customers across Osceola County. The utility reported Friday morning that 144 customers remain without power as a result of Hurricane Charley. As Central Florida’s hardest hit utility, KUA has successfully restored electric service to 57,856 customers capable of receiving power, or 99.75 percent.
Despite earlier utility projections that all power would be restored by midnight Thursday, the remaining 144 customers will not receive utility service until later today.
Small or isolated outages are possible throughout the areas that have already been restored.
Customers should call 407-933-7777 to report an outage. Customers may want to consider moving themselves and their families — especially those with special needs — to an alternate location during these extended outages.
Founded in 1901, KUA (www.kua.com) is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility providing electric service to 58,000 customers in Osceola County.
