Since Hurricane Ian, the San Carlos RV Resort & Marina near Fort Myers Beach, Fla., has been without power. On Thursday (Dec. 29) evening, the loud hum of gas generators could still be heard coming from RVs and mobile homes throughout the seasonal park, according to a report by WBBH-TV NBC2 in Fort Myers. 

Stephanie Price, the manager of the park, said she had been trying with little luck to get the power restored by FPL as the gas bills for the generators piled up.

“It’s a lot more money on a generator than power here.” Price said. “It was a mess, and everyone has been working seven days a week trying to get this back for the winter residents.”

Despite other nearby communities having their power restored weeks ago, the streetlights were still dark, despite FPL’s best efforts.

“There’s supposedly tags on the poles out here keeping FPL from reenergizing the feeders to give us electricity.” Price said.
