Municipal blackouts; Factor this into preparations
The article’s title is clear enough. Contemplate the narratives:
“We will be asking for illuminations and neon signs to be turned off,” … “It will be dark at night … … the initiative would discourage people from going out at night”. One benefit of studying WWII history – reading and talking with WWII era folks – allows for understanding blackouts and consequences.
Definitely factor this blackout scenerio into preparedness.
My area is the opposite of Tokyo and other huge cities but we’ve had experience with power faulures. A certain traffic light going out of service at night is a common crash scene.
My area is a 24/7 work schedule type of social environment. Some will stay at workplace until daylight. Safety governs.
