60,000 people still without power following storm
The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) says just under 60,000 people are still without power.
This morning up to 100,000 people were out of electricity following damage to their supply system caused by the passage of Tropical Storm Grace.
The JPS says its teams will continue working into the night to restore supply to as many customers as possible.
“Our teams worked throughout the day to complete damage assessment and do critical repair work. Over the next few hours we will focus on energising the lines that have been repaired,” said Winsome Callum, JPS' Corporate Communications Director.
