Hurricane Irma has left millions of Florida residents without electricity.  According to Florida Power & Light, service should be restored to everyone by Sunday.

That's the good news. The bad news is that your cell phone is likely useless by now without a charge or Wi-Fi.

Luckily, there are some Miami restaurants that are offering free Wi-Fi to customers. If you're still without electricity or internet, that means being able to get information, do work, or just surf the web with a cold (or hot) beverage in your hands.
