Almost 200 people crowded into cold weather shelters last night as temperatures dipped into the low 30s. Hundreds of people have sought shelter this past week, during the longest period of cold weather in South Florida in more than 25 years.

Last night, thousands of Florida Power & Light customers went to bed without power. The utility said so many customers using so much more power to heat their homes has caused outages.
