KINGSTON, Jamaica — Over 70 per cent of customers have had their electricity restored, two days after Hurricane Sandy hit, the Jamaica Public Service (JPS) said this afternoon.
The company said that most of its customers in western and southern parishes have received electricity.
St Catherine and the Corporate Area should have about 90 per cent restoration by later tonight, the light-and-power company said.
However, the worst hit parishes St Mary, Portland and St Thomas will have a longer wait as the JPS said it faces technical challenges.
Those parishes are experiencing delays because of damage to a major transmission line.
The company says its restoration efforts will continue into tonight and over the weekend.
