Power outage prolongation Anxiety spreads to refugees Chiba September 11 12:20

Due to the impact of Typhoon No. 15, power outages continued in Chiba Prefecture for a wide range of 11 days, and anxiety has spread among residents evacuating from their homes.

In Kimitsu City, Chiba Prefecture, where a wide range of power outages occurred, one of the shelters that had their lighting and coolers restored with a power company's power supply car was designated as a “special shelter” on the 10th. People and pregnant women are given priority.

As of 7:00 am on the 11th, 54 people, including those using ventilators and mothers with babies, have been evacuated to the shelter.

Among them, a woman in her twenties living in the city with an 8 month old baby had a power outage at home and was worried about heat stroke in her baby, and was too hot to sleep and lacked sleep. It means that she evacuated to this special shelter.

The woman said, “The house was still hot and hard without electricity. This shelter was saved by a cooler. I was uneasy because there was no prospect of power failure recovery.”

Also, a 20-year-old woman in the city, 9 months pregnant, said, “The obstetrics and gynecology department I am attending is blacked out and I am worried about what to do when something happens to my body. It was.

On the other hand, while the temperature rises on the 11th, there are many elderly people who want to evacuate in this special evacuation shelter, but there are cases where it exceeds the capacity to accept and does not meet the hope. .
