TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's Division of Emergency Management says that 151,973 customers were without electricity in the state.

The agency Tweeted the statistic Saturday, saying that as of 4 p.m. one percent of Florida's homes and businesses were now without power in the wake of Hurricane Hermine.

The storm felled trees and wires across a wide swath of north Florida. The city of Tallahassee was hit especially hard.

Florida State University in Tallahassee tweeted Saturday that power was restored to a majority of buildings on the main campus.
