Typhoon hits parts of Chiba, Japan, such as the earthquake and tsunami

Typhoon Faxi on the 9th in Japan’s history of the most powerful typhoon in the history of the Kanto era, hit the Chiba County, Narita Airport, the outbound traffic was broken into “land on the island”, especially today there are still more than 340,000 households In some areas, the tragic situation is more like an earthquake and tsunami.

On the 9th, Fassie smashed the maximum instantaneous wind speed of 57.5 meters per second in the central area of ​​Chiba City, setting a record in the history of local observations, causing 2 deaths, 61 injuries, and more than 900,000 households with power outages, etc., even Narita Airport Once turned into an “island on land”, more than 13,000 people were forced to spend the night at the airport.

Fassi once caused 930,900 households to lose power, of which Chiba County accounted for about 70% of the total; and more than 930,000 households were cut off, which is the largest scale of the transmission and distribution area of ​​Dongdian following the 311 earthquake in 2011.

The Japan Broadcasting Association (NHK) reported that there were still more than 340,000 households in Chiba County until 8 am today. The Tokyo Electric Power Company, which is responsible for distributing electricity, said that the completion of the comprehensive repair is expected to wait until the 13th.

TEPCO said that the area including Chiba City is expected to be repaired today, but Narita City and Kisarazu City will wait at least until tomorrow.

Dongdian said that such a large-scale and long-term power outage occurred for the first time since the 311 earthquake in 2011. At present, it has been assisted by other power companies and will invest about 11,000 people to repair it.

The Chiba City Government held a meeting on the Disaster Countermeasures Headquarters this morning. The mayor of the Kumagai, who was interviewed by the mayor, said that this time before the disaster, there was no such thing as the need to ask the central government for more assistance in the whole county. The government reacted too slowly to the disaster.

For TEPCO, it is impossible to grasp the time course of electric power repair. Xiong Gu also criticized that the worst case that may occur should be expected.

Due to the large-scale power outage in Chiba Prefecture, it has entered the fourth day, which has a serious impact on the lives of the citizens. After the invasion of Fassi, Chiba County had about 640,000 households with power outages, and there were not only power outages, but also many areas where water was stopped. However, it has not been re-applied yet.

After the crossing of the West, the Kanto area ushered in the hot summer weather. Many households could not use the air-conditioning because of the power outage. Two people were suspected of having died of heat stroke. Another 80-year-old woman using a population respirator expressed her difficulty in breathing in the Junjin City Shelter. Emergency medical treatment, long-term blackouts have had a serious impact on the lives of the county.

Japan’s Asahi Shimbun reported that the reason for the difficulty in repairing electric power was mainly due to the extensive damage to the transmission cable. In addition, many trees in the mountainous area were blown down by strong winds. Large vehicles that repaired electric power could not enter the scene because of a large number of fallen woods. It took a lot of time to dispose of these fallen wood.

Tachikawa, director of the East Electric Technician, said that it is not easy to grasp the damage of power equipment. It is not easy to predict the disaster situation after the typhoon transit.

Because Japanese netizens said on Twitter that there are too few media reports on this disaster, I hope that someone can help them to be widely known. The Japanese citizen online news platform 8bitNews reporter Yan Run went to Chinan, Chiba Prefecture to interview and found that the disaster in sawnan town is more than imagined. Seriously, “it is like being hit by an earthquake and a tsunami.”

Many houses in sawan town were affected by the disaster. The electric poles that were dumped were crushed in houses and bicycles, and the site was only about an hour’s drive from downtown Tokyo. The cables and base stations here were damaged and could not be properly assisted; the convenience store was suspended due to severe disasters, and even residents could not purchase food.
