POWER has now been restored almost 90% of JPS customers islandwide.

The company says it has entered the final phase of restoration, which is likely to prove the most challenging, due to the fact that the last 10 per cent is comprised of mostly customers in communities that were worst affected by the hurricane; customers fed by power lines and infrastructure that suffered significant damage; and customers in areas where restoration crews face access challenges due to damaged roads, and roads blocked by landslides and uprooted trees.

JPS says it will now be focusing its attention on getting to these customers, as well as to those in areas affected by isolated outages.
