NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – It’s been one week since Irma hit Florida and Dominion Energy crews are still in the sunshine state helping out.

More than 60,000 utility workers, including more than 750 Dominion Energy employees and contractors, are still working around the clock to get the lights on for the remaining customers.

The crews were the first in the Orlando are and then moved to the Fort Lauderdale area.

The Edison Electric Institute reports that 93 percent of customers who lost power during Hurricane Irma have been restored and about 534,000 outages remain in Florida.
