Massive Power Outage

  •  Early in the morning, a massive power outage was occurred in my prefecture. This power outage cut electricity to about 380 thousand homes and stopped about 2700 traffic lights. Furthermore, 15 bullet trains stopped and this influenced about 6600 people. It was reported that the reason of the power outage was that transmission lines had been damaged, and it lasted from 5:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. However, actually I couldn’t be aware of this power outage, because I woke up around 8:30 a.m. and I didn’t use electricity for a while. I just noticed the power outage when I went to my university and watched my PC. Although I put my PC in sleep mode, it was shut down.

     Anyway, this accident was lucky it wasn’t worse. I mean, despite the massive power outage, there were no large-scale traffic accidents or injuries.
