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.

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.
