The reason for the great loss experienced at Okawa Elementary School is that nobody expected a tsunami to travel that far. No specific place for evacuation was mentioned in the evacuation manual. For this reason the children and teachers did not escape on the hill behind the school, and were engulfed by the tsunami after while they tried to evacuate. It is vital to develop the ability to imagine what kind of tsunami can hit your own community.
