TOKYO - Tokyo Electric Power Company announced that it plans to conduct rolling blackouts on Tuesday from 6:20 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The company divided Tokyo and five prefectures where they provide power into five groups and will conduct rolling blackouts for about three hours during the time slots assigned to each group.

TEPCO had announced that it will conduct rolling blackouts on Monday from 6:20 a.m. to 10 p.m. However, TEPCO did not conduct blackouts except for between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. since many businesses saved power, especially train companies, which reduced the number of trains running.

But fewer trains caused confusion for commuters. Many commuters flooded train stations, waiting for trains to come.

Here are the list of cities and their groups that are located near U.S. military installations. Only part of the areas listed will be effected by the blackouts.

This is not the complete list. This is a plan and could change.
