At least three people have died and 101 people were injured while attempting repairs on houses and other facilities in Chiba Prefecture after Typhoon Faxai pounded the Kanto region earlier this month, according to a Kyodo tally.

The prefectural government is calling on local residents to seek help from professionals who can safely repair damaged roofs.

According to the tally, which is based on information from local fire departments, a 61-year-old man died after a fall while trying to repair the roof of his house in the city of Kimitsu on Sept. 10.
