JR East to halt all services after 8 p.m. Sunday – Typhoon Coming Again

It’s now 6:30 p.m. Just after I got home the downpour began.

According to the Yomiuri Shinbun:

“East Japan Railway Co. has announced that it will halt all train services in the Tokyo metropolitan area after 8 p.m. Sunday due to the approaching Typhoon No. 24.”

On the way home I noticed the trains were unusually crowded for a Sunday early evening.

This is the first time I ever heard of a scheduled shut-down of all train services though. A lot of people are going to get stuck.

My storm shutters are closed.
