Great East Japan Earthquake and Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station Accident

2011 May 3 OfGreat East Japan EarthquakeThen, our city was also damaged, and a seismic intensity of 6 lower was observed.From off Miyagi to off IbarakiEpicenterIn Motoichi, which is in the middle of the area, shaking with a seismic intensity of 4 or higher continues for 3 minutes and 10 seconds.[25]This was the longest seismic intensity meter that observed the earthquake.Also,Japanese Meteorological AgencyEstimated seismic intensity distribution map[26] According to the report, it is believed that there was a local tremor equivalent to a seismic intensity of 7 in the northeastern part of the city.

The following month, April 4, there was an inland earthquake with an epicenter near the Idosawa Fault in the southwestern part of the city.Fukushima Prefecture Hamadori EarthquakeOccurred, and a seismic intensity of 6 lower was observed.Due to this earthquake, the Idosawa Fault, the Shionohira Fault, and the Yunodake Fault in the central western part of the city were displaced simultaneously over several tens of kilometers.The past activity of the Yunodake fault is 14 years ago, and the Shionohira fault is an unknown fault, and it is thought that it was induced by the strain of the earthquake.As a result, faults (maximum head 2 m), cracks and cracks appeared throughout the city, and landslides occurred one after another.[27]..The next day, an aftershock with a seismic intensity of less than 6 occurred near the Yunodake fault.

Due to this series of seismic activity and tsunami, the total number of half-destroyed houses in the city is Miyagi prefecture.Sendai cityThe number of households was about 4 (9 including partial damage), and the death toll was more than 400, mainly due to the tsunami and landslides.

Also included in the aboveOkuma TownOccurred inFukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant AccidentAccording to a questionnaire randomly selected by the city one and a half years later, almost half of the respondents were temporarily out of the city due to the earthquake and the nuclear accident. I answered that I had evacuated to.It is estimated that about 1 people have been evacuated in the city because of this.[28].. Most of the citizens returned in about three months, but about 3 people moved out in half a year.

Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plantIn the accident, there was a strong historical and economic connection.FutabaApproximately 24,000 people, mainly residents of Japan (as of April 2013)[29] Is evacuating, which exceeds the decrease in the number of residents who have moved out of Iwaki City, resulting in an increase in the population.However, most of them do not transfer their resident's card to Iwaki City and receive the resident tax exemption while leaving it in the town and village of Futaba District, while receiving the administrative services of the evacuation destination Iwaki City under the Nuclear Disaster Victims Special Law. The amount of work done by the city hall, etc. is increasing for the current resident population, including evacuees, rather than the population in the basic ledger, but tax revenue has not increased much.

Iwaki City has a temporary government office function (including some)Naraha Town[30] とTomioka Town[31] とOkuma Town(Location of Nuclear Power Plant Units 1-4)[32] Is.Also, as of 2013, it is in Saitama prefecture.Futaba TownThe government office (location of nuclear power plants 5-6) has also decided to relocate to our city, and is scheduled to relocate in June 2013.[33].. (It moved as planned and still has a government office function as of 2021.) These four towns have the largest number of evacuation destinations for residents in Iwaki City.Namie TownThere are more than 2,000 evacuees, so we have a branch office.[34].Hirono TownAlso had a temporary office, but returned in March 2012 due to the cancellation of the emergency evacuation preparation area.However, as of May 3, 2013% of the residents live in Iwaki City.

Iwaki City was scheduled to be dismantled for the victimsEmployment promotion housingThe construction of temporary housing for citizens was about 630, such as opening 200 units in a hurry and utilizing municipal and prefectural housing.However, more than 3,300 temporary housing units for evacuees in Futaba District have been built throughout the city.[35].

Rental properties with Iwaki citizens affected by the disasterFutabaMany are rented by the people, and 3 TEPCO facilities (Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant,Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power StationとHirono Thermal Power Station) AndDecontaminationDemand is tight because it has become a place of residence for decontamination workers and restoration workers due to the full-scale work, and even as of April 2013, transferees and students who have entered the city have found a resident property. There are some cases that cannot be done.There was also a rental agency with more than 4 people waiting to move in for rental properties, which was a serious situation.[36].

The habitable range has expanded to Hirono Town and Naraha Town, and the residences of TEPCO-related employees, decontamination workers, and restoration workers have moved to the north, but the climate is similar to their hometown from the evacuation site of their current location. The desire to move to Iwaki City continues.

Land prices in residential areas are also rising. As of January 2013, 1, the official land prices for Izumimoegidai increased by 1% and Chuodai increased by 10.7%, and the rate of increase in residential areas was 10.6th and 6th in Japan. The average volatility increased year-on-year for the first time in 8 years.This is also thought to be due to the fact that in addition to the normal demand in Iwaki City and the demand of the victims, the victims in Futaba District have given up returning home and are purchasing residential land in the city.[37].

This movement continues, and as of January 2014, 1, the official land price was 1% for Chuodai, 11.6% for Kusakidai, and 11.3% for Izumimoegidai, the second highest rate of increase in residential areas in Japan. And 11.2th and 2th.Furthermore, as of January 5, 7, the official land prices for Izumimoegidai increased by 2015%, Kusakidai increased by 1%, and Chuodaiiino and Izumigaoka increased by 1%. Iwaki City occupied.In this way, housing land prices in the city are rising by an average of 17.1% and 14.1-13.3% at popular points compared to before the earthquake, as well as soaring materials and a shortage of builders, so housing purchases are significantly more expensive. It has become a serious problem.Iwaki City is also actively promoting land conversion, but has not yet reached a solution.
