Two died from heat stroke in Japan, after nearly one million homes were cut off by electricity, when a Typhoon Faxai hit Tokyo and surrounding areas, on Monday.

Authorities in Chiba province in western Japan told AFP, a 93-year-old woman and a 65-year-old man, were found unconscious at their home yesterday, before being confirmed by doctors to die.

He said at least 48 people were sent to the hospital after showing symptoms of heat stroke Tuesday.

It occurred when temperatures were dipping below 35 degrees Celsius, especially in areas where power was cut off due to a Typhoon Faxai on Monday.

Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) in a statement said that by this morning, about 456,000 homes had been cut off.

“People are asked to take shelter in cold areas and drink plenty of water to avoid heat stroke”, TEPCO said while apologizing to its customers for the problem.

Meanwhile, local authorities said the water supply to 84,000 homes was also cut off, as some water processing plants faced power supply issues, but are expected to recover gradually on Thursday.

The military also helped us send water tankers to affected areas.
