Typhoon Faxai Disrupts Tokyo Traffic in Commuting Hours

Typhoon Faxai Disrupts Tokyo Traffic in Commuting Hours

   Tokyo, Sept. 9 (Jiji Press)--Powerful typhoon Faxai disrupted traffic in the greater Tokyo area during Monday morning commuting hours as many train services were halted.
   East Japan Railway Co. <9020>, or JR East, stopped its busy Yamanote, Tokaido and Sobu lines from the outset of the day's services, as the typhoon ripped through the greater Tokyo area early in the morning.
   The services were being resumed gradually. But many lines remained halted at 8 a.m. (11 p.m. Sunday GMT), affecting a large number of commuters.
   Even on resumed lines, JR East restricted entry of passengers into major stations, such as Ofuna on the Tokaido line, Nishifunabashi on the Musashino line and Musashi-Koganei on the Chuo line.
   Central Japan Railway Co. <9022>, or JR Tokai, suspended its Shinkansen bullet train services until 7:40 a.m. mainly because it needed to remove objects left by the typhoon.
