Heavy rain, flooding affecting JPS power supply in St Ann, St Mary, Portland
The Jamaica Public Service Company is reporting that continued heavy rains and flooding over the weekend has resulted in several customers in northern and eastern Jamaica being out of power.
In St Mary the affected areas include:
Market Street and areas leading off
(Land slippages have left Market Street inaccessible, preventing equipment repairs in the area.)
The JPS says its teams are making every effort to restore power supply in the affected areas, but issues of access to areas, and continued rainfall have also impacted the rate at which restoration can take place.
