Power for one section of Pine Island was restored along Stringfellow Road on Wednesday.

According to LCEC, the fire stations, the RO plant, the town center and Pine Island Elementary School were energized. Duke Energy and LCEC support teams will begin rebuilding the infrastructure to serve some neighborhoods on Thursday.

LCEC says it is officially out of storm restoration for the mainland and will be working to restore a few remaining individual services, including Cape Coral, North Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres, Immokalee, Marco Island, Carnestown and Naples. Customers experiencing an outage on the mainland can report the outage by calling (239) 656-2300.
