Sept 17 (Reuters) - More than 433,000 homes and businesses remained without power on Thursday, mostly in Florida and Alabama, after Hurricane Sally smashed into the Gulf Cost early Wednesday, according to local utilities. That was down from over 614,000 customers who had lost electricity as utilities in Florida and Alabama restore power now that Sally's remnants have moved onto Georgia. NextEra Energy Inc's Gulf Power utility in Florida has restored over 108,000 customers. The utility still has about 178,000 without power. In Louisiana, which was not hit by Sally, about 50,000 customers were still without power in the southwestern part of the state since Hurricane Laura hit the coast in late August. Entergy Corp, which still has about 32,000 out in Louisiana, said it expected to restore service to most by Sept. 23, with the remaining customers who can safely accept power back by Sept. 30.
