2016 Hurricane Recap



The powers to be in the Florida Government

are telling the people in Lake county Florida.

Because there is not enough damage reported in the county.

No one can get assistance from the government of Florida or FEMA!

Please explain this to our home, and the neighborhood.

While you are at it with your explanation,

Please ask


Tropical Storm Colin

made landfall in the late night hours on Monday, June 6.

Colin is the first named storm to make landfall in Florida since Andrea in 2013.

While Colin moved across the state, parts of SECO’s service area experienced tropical-storm-force winds and extended periods of heavy rainfall.

Colin caused only a small number of outages in SECO’s area.

Crews worked quickly and safely to restore these outages within hours.


Hurricane Hermine

made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane in the Big Bend area on Friday, September 2.

Hermine brought buckets of rain and high winds to the area,

causing approximately 14,000 total service interruptions.

Along with the hurricane, tornadoes touched down in Sumter County.

Members in Marion, Levy and Citrus counties were hardest hit by Hurricane Hermine.

The SECO team

did a stellar job

in quickly restoring power

by midnight that Friday.


Hurricane Matthew

became an extremely powerful Category 3 hurricane

that hugged Florida’s east coast

as it traveled north

Thursday, October 6.

Though Matthew didn’t make landfall in Florida,

the storm brought rain and very strong winds to SECO’s service area.


The hurricane accounted for approximately 28,000 outages for SECO members.


The area hardest hit was east Lake County,

which suffered extensive damage.


Broken trees,

damaged utility poles,

flooding and roadway


were challenges

for SECO crews and contractors.


By early Saturday afternoon,

all SECO members’ power was restored.

However, the damage to our homes still remain!
