Florida Power & Light has aggregated its storm operations at a new $3.8 million “command center” close to the Rapid Water Park in Riviera Beach, the Sun Sentinel reported. The facility, which will house 140 emergency responders, can endure a Category 5 hurricane. The Riviera Beach location replaces the company’s Miami-area center.
