TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A week after Hurricane Hermine left over 100,000 customers without power in Leon County, just a few hundred remain in the dark.

According to the City of Tallahassee, just 126 customers remain without power as of 6:30 p.m. Friday. Talquin Electric, which serves a sizable portion of Leon County is reporting only 4 outages.

The city's outage map, which was covered with red dots, indicating outages, and virtually inaccessible online for days following the storm, now seems to show a red dot for each outage.

Several dozen of the outages seem to be clustered in the Indian Head Acres and Woodland Drives neighborhood, southeast of downtown Tallahassee.

Many of the other outages appear to be widespread, according to the city's map.

The City tweeted Friday morning that crews are now transitioning from larger outages to focus on single homes without power. Customers still without power are encouraged to contact the city.

Also on Friday, the City of Tallahassee, Leon County and State of Florida are beginning to include residential and business service as part of debris removal.

Local officials said earlier this week that residential and business debris removal should take about two weeks.
