TOKYO, March 17 (Reuters) - An unexpected, large-scale power outage is possible in Tokyo and surrounding areas on Thursday evening if power demand exceeds that of this morning , Japan's trade minister said. Trade minister Banri Kaieda told reporters that demand this morning almost reached Tokyo Electric Power Co's available power capacity, adding that electricity demand usually peaks in the evening or early night. A devastating quake and tsunami hit northeast coast of Japan last week, crippling TEPCO's Daiichi nuclear facility where explosions and radioactivity leaks have led thousands of people to evacuate the area, cut electricity suppliers and halted industrial operations in wide areas in northern Japan.
