FACTBOX-Over 200,000 U.S. customers without power after Hurricane Michael

    Oct 15 (Reuters) - More than 200,000 homes and businesses in the U.S. Southeast were still
without power on Monday after Hurricane Michael swept up the East Coast from Florida last week,
according to local power companies.
    In total, Michael caused over 3 million outages from Florida to New York after hitting the
Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour (250
kph).
    Some customers in the hardest-hit parts of Florida may have to wait another week or two
until their power is restored, local utilities said.
    The Florida Division of Emergency Management said on its Twitter site that about 150,000
homes and businesses in the state were still without power, including more than 90 percent of
customers in Calhoun and Gulf counties and over 80 percent in Jackson and Liberty counties on
the Panhandle.
    Southern Co's Gulf Power unit estimated it would restore power in the hardest-hit
areas, like Panama City, by Oct. 24, according to the company website.
        
    The following table lists outages:
