80% power outages continue in SE Florida

Power Outages in South Florida from Wilma (click to enlarge)

Wilma surprised everybody when it was still a Cat 3 as it churned from the Gulf through to Florida’s Atlantic Coast. The power is still out for over 3/4 of the millions of residents of Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties and may not return for four weeks! (err… possibly not until Easter if you’re Dave Barry)

The Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel — despite hampered operations as a result of the storm — has great coverage of this catastrophe – which seems to have been very poorly covered by national media as a result of apparent disaster-fatigue (not to worry – the Bush boys finally made a visit yesterday).
