Reuters reported that Nippon Steel Corp said that one of two basic-oxygen furnaces at Kimitsu Steel Works in Chiba prefecture east of Tokyo had halted operations since Monday after a chimney that discharges gas collapsed due to a typhoon. A spokeswoman at Nippon Steel said that “We are still investigating the damage and we don’t know how long it will take to repair the chimney and resume operations."

One of the strongest typhoons to hit eastern Japan in recent years struck just east of Tokyo on Monday, killing one woman, with record-breaking winds and stinging rain damaging buildings and disrupting transport.
