Fewer than 5,000 JPS customers still without electricity

Audrey Williams, Corporate Communication Officer at JPS


The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) is reporting that fewer than 5,000 customers are still without electricity in the aftermath of heavy rain across the island.  
Just under 25,000 customers were left without service following the inclement weather over the last few days.  
Audrey Williams, Corporate Communications Officer at the JPS said about 31 per cent of the company's customers are still without electricity. The majority of those customers are located in Clarendon as JPS is still experiencing difficulty accessing some communities in the parish.  

"We are working to get everybody in and as soon as those access issues that we face in Clarendon have been dealt with, we'll definitely be getting there to do what we can do," said the communications officer.

Other communities still affected by outages include: sections of Mavis Bank, Perkins Boulevard and Queensborough in St. Andrew; Camberwell in St. Mary; Gobay, Mount Rosser and Williamsfield in St. Catherine; as well as Hopewell and St. Leonards in St. James.
