AOMORI (Kyodo) About 240,000 people in some 93,000 households in the city of Hachinohe and six other municipalities in Aomori Prefecture have gone without water since Thursday evening because of a duct problem.

Aomori Gov. Shingo Mimura requested a disaster relief dispatch of Ground Self-Defense Force troops. The GSDF quickly sent about 30 water trucks and plans to keep supplies coming until the water is restored.
