* Case Study
The mortality rate was higher in places far from the sea at the time of the Great East Japan Earthquake. The reason was simple – they didn’t think a tsunami could travel that far. The expected height of a major tsunami warning was 10-meters. But this could be higher depending on coastal and land geographical features. It is vital to develop the ability to imagine what kind of tsunami can hit your own community.
