Why?

The shut down of many power plants in Kanto (Tokyo) and Tohoku (North Japan) is facing the shortage of electricity.

 

What to do

  • Try to avoid traveling
  • Save electricity as much as possible even if you are not in the area
  • Try to avoid driving. Traffic signal will be off
  • Contact TEPCO customer service if you need the special medical attention
