The Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) says its crews are seeking to restore power to as many areas as possible today.

Many communities lost power as a result of rains associated with Hurricane Ian.

The JPS says Clarendon and St Catherine account for most of the outages, although there are a few areas without power in other parishes.

Moores District and sections of May Pen in Clarendon and sections of Linstead in St Catherine are reportedly the worst affected.

The JPS says its crews were initially hampered by the adverse weather conditions, flooding, landslides and blocked roads.

However, it says they are now making significant progress as there has been an improvement in conditions.

The JPS is asking for patience and understanding as the teams try to restore power to communities.
