Travel Alert: Japan [October 4, 2021]

Travel Alert

Water supply disruptions have been reported in areas of Wakayama, Wakayama Prefecture, as of October 4, 2021. The disruptions have been caused by the Musota water pipe bridge collapsing the afternoon of October 3, 2021. The bridge supplies water to northern areas of the city. Media sources indicate approximately 60,000 homes in northern areas are experiencing water outages. Authorities are working to restore the water supply.

Business disruptions are possible, especially for companies that rely on large quantities of municipal water. Prolonged and recurrent water supply disruptions are possible until officials normalize the water supply. Riskovery recommends limiting non-essential water use, and to stock up on drinking water. Expect the quality of water and water to pressure to be an issue for the following days.
