MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — While the storm itself is long gone, there are plenty of people still feeling the effects of Hurricane Matthew.

More than 442,000 electric customers in Florida are still without power in the aftermath of Matthew.

Gov. Rick Scott’s office released the latest outage figures Sunday morning. The number represents about 4 percent of all electric customers in the state.

The most customers without power were in Duval County, with about 134,000. That was followed by Volusia County with just over 129,000 and about 42,000 in both Brevard and Flagler counties.

At the storm’s height Friday, more than 1 million customers in Florida were without electricity.

Scott has said the state’s large utilities told him their goal was to have most power restored by Sunday night.
