The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) is reporting that some 12,000 customers in the parishes of Kingston, St Andrew, Clarendon,  St James, St Ann and St Mary are now without electricity.

This is the result of heavy rains since last night which have caused some power lines to be brought down.

Director of C‎ommunications at JPS Winsome Callum says the power company has deployed its technical teams to restore service.

But she is asking for patience because of the challenges being presented by the current wet conditions, landslides and flooding.
