(Reuters) - More than 2.4 million homes and businesses were without power early on Thursday in Florida after being hit by Hurricane Ian, according to local power companies.

Some utilities have started to restore customers now that the storm has passed southern Florida even though the number of outages continues to increase as the storm chugs across Florida towards the Atlantic.

In its latest advisory the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Ian was causing flooding rains across central and northern Florida. The system was located about 55 miles (90 kilometers) south-southeast of Orlando, Florida, and was packing maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour (120 kmh) as of 2 a.m. EDT (0600 GMT).

The utility with the most outages so far was Florida Power & Light Co (FPL), a unit of Florida energy company NextEra Energy Inc (NYSE:NEE). FPL has activated its emergency response plan, which includes mobilizing more than 13,000 personnel to support power restoration efforts.
