The disruption experienced due to power cuts on some train lines in Japan paralyzed life. East Japan Railway, one of the country's largest rail operators, announced today afternoon that it has experienced extensive service interruptions in some states, including Tokyo.
While it was stated that an explosion sound was heard at 12.55:XNUMX at a company owned substation in Warabi city of Saitama province, it was noted that railway transportation stopped on many lines in the Tokyo metropolitan area, including the Yamanote, Keihin-Tohoku and Joban train lines.
While it became clear that a fire broke out in the substation in the following hours, it was learned that studies were continuing to determine whether the disruption in train services was related to the fire.
