A large-scale blackout hit Kawasaki on Monday, affecting an estimated 89,000 households, police said Tuesday.
According to TEPCO, the blackout started from around 12:50 p.m. in the city's Miyamae Ward. The incident also created a system failure in the water supply, which in turn caused pipes to burst, TBS reported. City officials say that one of the city's parks was flooded as a result.
A TEPCO spokesperson reported that the power outage was caused by equipment failure. Power was restored at about 3:30 p.m.© Japan Today
