Tokyo faces worst June heat wave in nearly 150 years

Tokyo faces worst June heat wave in nearly 150 years

Today marks the fourth consecutive day of extreme temperatures in Japan, with temperatures in the capital in June rising to a level not seen in nearly 150 years, while power outages have been disrupted, officials warned.

Today’s maximum temperature in Tokyo is forecast at 36 degrees Celsius, and three days later it rises to 35 degrees Celsius – the worst in June since records began in 1875.

For the second day, residents in the Tokyo area were asked by authorities to rationalize their electricity consumption to avoid power outages.

With just two weeks to go before the national election, the heat wave and high turnout in polls – including electricity – is a major concern for voters.

Thirteen people were taken to hospital on suspicion of heat stroke. According to the Fuji News Network, the media reports that at least two people are believed to have died of heat stroke.
