Japan Sees Partial Blackout After First Power Supply Warning

Parts of Japan lost power on Tuesday.


Parts of Japan lost power on Tuesday after the government issued an electricity supply warning for the first time and urged consumers to save energy as a major earthquake last week forced some power plants to stop operating.

To alleviate power problems amid unusually cold conditions in eastern Japan on Tuesday, Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) said it would receive up to 1.42 million kilowatts of electricity from seven regional utilities.

Despite the effort, Tepco said as of 11:34 a.m. (0234 GMT), about 2,120 households in three provinces near Tokyo had lost power.
