Power company Florida Power & Light (FPL) reported that at least 1,400 customers awoke today without power in Broward, while in neighboring Miami-Dade at least a thousand have been affected their power supply, reports Local 10 channel.

The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport has requested on its Twitter account that passengers review the status of their flights because some have been affected by bad weather.
