FACTBOX-Hurricane Matthew leaves over 2 mln in U.S. Southeast powerless

3 Min Read

Oct 8 - Over two million homes and businesses were without
power on Saturday night as Hurricane Matthew crashed along the
Atlantic coast of North Carolina after earlier battering
Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, electric companies said.
    Matthew, the first major hurricane to hit the United States
in more than 10 years, lashed the coast with heavy rain and
wind, after killing almost 900 people in Haiti as it swept north
through the Caribbean. 
    The hardest hit utility so far was NextEra Energy Inc's
 FPL power company in Florida, which reported a total of
974,800 customers affected by the storm. FPL said on its website
it had already restored service to about 684,000 homes and
businesses.
    
    The following lists current outages at U.S. power companies.
