Long-term power outage due to typhoon No.15 in Chiba prefecture
In Minamiboso City, Chiba Prefecture, where a wide range of power outages has occurred due to the impact of Typhoon No. 19, power outages continue at facilities where elderly people enter. The facility that suffered a prolonged power outage due to Typhoon No. 15 last month has voiced anxiety about the lack of recovery.
According to Minamiboso City, due to the impact of Typhoon No. 19, blackouts occurred at 14 facilities such as nursing homes in the city, and as of noon on the 14th, 11 places were not restored.
Among them, the group home where 18 people including senior citizens enter, “Nagi Home Shirahama”, had a power outage from the night of the 12th, and the generator borrowed from the city used to power the power of some equipment such as the refrigerator.
However, water can no longer be sent from the facility's tank, water does not come out of the faucet, and care equipment and air conditioners to prevent bed slipping are not available.
At this facility, during the typhoon No. 15 last month, power outages continued for more than 5 days in the midst of intense heat, and we are worried that this may be prolonged.
“If you can't use care equipment and air conditioners for a long time, you will be involved in the lives of residents. As well as hospitals, it is essential to have electricity in elderly facilities. I would be grateful if you could deploy a power supply car too. "
