JPS says damage assessments necessary before power can be restored to some 400,000 customers

The Jamaica Public Service (JPS) Company says it is critical for its workers to conduct damage assessments before making steps to restore power across the island.

Some 400,000 customers are reportedly without power following the passage of Hurricane Beryl.

However, JPS Director of Corporate Communications, Winsome Callum stresses the importance of understanding the level of damage before restoration can begin.

She explains that the assessment phase is both for the safety of citizens and JPS workers.

Ms. Callum notes that following the assessments, entities that provide critical services such as hospitals will receive power first.
