Scores of JPS Customers without Power

The Jamaica Public Service Company, (JPS) says sections of several parishes are without power due to damage to its systems as a result of the heavy rains.

In a statement today, JPS says sections of Kingston and St. Andrew, St. Mary, Hanover, St. Ann, St. James and St. Catherine are without power.

It says technical teams are working to restore service.

However, the JPS says while it’ll make every effort to restore power to the affected areas as soon as possible, the pace of restoration is being slowed by continuing rain, landslides and flooding.
