Long Delays to Get Home Last Friday, Is It A Natural Disaster?

Last Friday,  Western Sydney commuters faced 4 to 5 hours delay to get home, due to delayed train services, caused by lightening strikes on  Sydney Trains signals.

I heard at first heard that some commuters were able to get off at Strathfield and have family members and/or friends pick them up and take them home.

The issue that was created, a lightening strike on a signal , is something that no government should be held accountable or responsible. With so many signals on the railway lines, it was pleasing that  Sydney Trains officials attended to the blown out signal as quick as possible.

This lightening created a natural disaster, holding up train services and delaying trips for commuters to reach home. Do you think that it was a reasonable amount of time for commuters to wait for to get home?
