cause of death
Most of the deaths of the victims of this earthquake were water deaths caused by being involved in the tsunami.In the tsunami, there is a lot of sand and the seabedsludge, Port facilitiesheavy oilHazardous substances such as were contained.Foreign matter such as sandlungIf you entertracheaIf a toxic substance enters the lungs, it invades the body, and in that case it is of little help.The process leading to the death of water is that it makes breathing difficult, debris hits and loses consciousness, and in the snow of March.hypothermiaIt is probable that there were various circumstances such as accompanying.
Most of the deaths caused by crushing, injury, and burning are caused by debris caused by the tsunami.
The victims of the earthquake itself, such as the collapse of buildings, landslides, the fall of non-structural members of the ceiling, and the fall from high places, were 36 in Fukushima, 18 in Ibaraki, 13 in Miyagi, and Tokyo. There are 7 people, such as 90 people, just by knowing[61].

In the three prefectures of Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima, there were 3 people as of June 2016, 6, whose arms and legs were found and their identities were identified, but they were not counted as dead due to the undiscovered head. For reasons such as "even if only the thumb is found, it does not mean that he is dead."Whether or not to exclude this number from the number of missing persons is divided among the three prefectures.[62][63].

Shizuoka UniversityThe Disaster Prevention Center summarizes the ratio of the number of dead and missing to the number of residents in the flooded area of ​​the tsunami.Meiji Sanriku EarthquakeCompared with.According to it, the largest is Miyagi prefectureOnagawa11.97%, followed by Iwate prefectureOtsuchi TownRikuzentakata CityBoth were 11.72%.Regarding the Meiji Sanriku Earthquake, the ratio of victims to the population of municipalities, not the flooded areas, was given, but Iwate PrefectureKamaishiIt has exceeded 50% in 11 municipalities, such as about 15%, and it is possible that this tsunami had a certain effect on disaster prevention measures.[64][65].

Earthquake-related death

In the Great East Japan EarthquakeShelterCases of death after evacuation due to unsanitary conditions or cold weather (Earthquake-related death) Is one after another, mainly among the elderly[66][67].Reconstruction AgencyThe death toll related to the earthquake is defined as "a person who died due to worsening injuries caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake and was eligible for the disaster-related condolence money payment based on the Act on Payment of Disaster Condolence Money, etc."[68]..According to the Reconstruction Agency, as of the end of September 20203,767(福島県2,313人、宮城県929人、岩手県469人など)が震災関連死に認定されている。死亡した時期別にみると、震災発生から1週間以内は472人、8日後以降1か月以内は743人、2か月目以降1年以内は1,587人で、5年目でも105人いる[69][70]..The number of deaths due to earthquake-related deaths in Fukushima Prefecture exceeds the number of direct deaths due to earthquakes and tsunamis.[71]..Most of the earthquake-related deaths in Fukushima Prefecture are thought to be "nuclear-related deaths" that died due to the effects of evacuation from the nuclear accident, such as illness.Tokyo NewspaperAs of March 2016, at least 3 people in Fukushima Prefecture had nuclear-related deaths.[72].

Nuclear power plant accident

Approximately one hour after the earthquake, a tsunami with a run-up height of 1-14m struck.TEPCOFukushima Daiichi nuclear power plantLost all AC power at Units 1-5.ReactorCan no longer be cooled, and in No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 furnacesCore melt(Meltdown) occurs.massiveRadioactive materialSerious with leaksNuclear accidentDeveloped into (→Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Accident).This accidentInternational Nuclear Event Rating ScaleWorst level 7,Chernobyl nuclear power plant accidentIt is positioned in the same way as.Fukushima Prefecture, where the nuclear power plant is locatedHamadoriThe evacuation of Fukushima residents in the surrounding area, mainly in rural areas, has been prolonged, and since 2012, it has been a “difficult-to-return area”.[73]"Restricted residence area[74]Was also set (→Impact of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station).others,Thermal power plantThe Kanto region under the jurisdiction of TEPCO is serious because of the damage caused by such things.electricityDue to a shortage, it was the first time in 65 years in Japan for a period immediately after the earthquake.Planned power outageWas carried out[75]..Rolling blackoutsTohoku Electric PowerIn addition to being carried out immediately after the earthquake in the jurisdiction, the next day2012Before the summerKansai Electric PowerEven in the jurisdictionOhi Power StationThere was debate over the restart of (Oi Nuclear Power Plant), and the possibility of rolling blackouts was discussed.

In addition to Fukushima Daiichi, the following nuclear power plants were located in the areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.Both are serious as a resultNuclear disasterHowever, the loss of external power supply, damage to the emergency generator, and the seawater pump for cooling the reactor[Note 2]Some power plants were forced to one step before a serious nuclear disaster, such as damage to the power plant.Of these, the Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Station lost its cooling function, just like the Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.Article 10 report based on the Act on Special Measures Concerning Nuclear Emergency Preparedness,Nuclear emergency declarationIt was announced.

Tsunami fire
Buildings and vehicles collapsed by the great tsunami are pushed into the inland area as debris, and debris is contained in petroleum fuel for heating at the edges of flooded areas and where it is accumulated (accumulated) due to the influence of topography and wind.kerosene-heavy oil) The combustible material leaked from the tank, gas cylinder, or fuel tank for automobiles ignited due to some kind of spark.In particular, the seamlessly piled up debris spread the fire from the urban area to the forest.In addition, the spreading debris drifted over the sea and spread to the opposite bank and distant places.[93]..From the results of interviews with residents and firefighters, it was difficult to secure firefighting water use and transportation at the tsunami fire site, and to avoid secondary damage involved in the tsunami and the spread of fire, the fire extinguishing work was stopped. There was a situation where the site had to be abandoned, and the fire spread rapidly.[95].
Earthquake fire
Similar to the fires caused by earthquakes that occurred in the past, heating appliances, cooking utensils, electrical wiring, and damaged electrical appliances in collapsed houses and buildings ignited after the power was restored (recovery), resulting in a fire.[93].

Religious scholarTetsuo YamaoriIt is,Goro HashimotoIn a sense, in a dialogue withEnd lawWhen asked about the role of religion in the post-earthquake world, "Great Hanshin Earthquake(1995) In both the Great East Japan Earthquake, religious people were at the same level as volunteers, even if they worked hard. " "Social MediaIs bloated and the words of religious people are not reaching the modern people, but I wanted them to say solid words. "[149].

Damage status by region

Due to the Great East Japan Earthquake, a large number of line of duty deaths have occurred.Hundreds of people were killed by the tsunami, including 262 firefighters and firefighters, 25 police officers, and two SDF personnel, as well as officials, faculty, and staff of medical institutions and nursing homes. Became.

In particular, many people died as firefighters who play the role of local disaster prevention support volunteers.[Note 8]So, the time of occurrence is the daytime on weekdays, and during the time from the earthquake to the tsunami, you can engage in work such as closing tide embankments and water gates according to the disaster prevention manual, guide residents to evacuate, collect information, and delay escape. 254 fire brigade members (as of September 2012, 9) who were on the way to the station to rescue the inhabitants or respond to a disaster died or went missing.[150][151][152].

As of 2011:7 (JST) on July 14, 15, there were 100 municipalities in Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima prefectures with a total of 22 or more dead and missing.[153].


The number of dead in Aomori Prefecture was 1 in Hachinohe City and 2 in Misawa City, for a total of 3 people, and the number of missing people was 1 in Hachinohe City.Both are due to the tsunami caused by the earthquake.There were a total of 18 injured, 77 seriously injured and 95 slightly injured.


The amount of damage related to the prefectural office was about 100 million yen.this house,Prefectural officeIs about 50 yen, and the joint government building is about 50 yen.In the prefectural office, the south and east buildings were cracked in the corridors and the floor was partially damaged, and the west wing multi-story parking lot was also damaged to the extent that vehicles could not be stored.At the joint government buildingMutsuDamage was seen in the joint government building, and the main ones were cracks in the walls.

Regarding waste treatment facilities, the underground pump room of two human waste treatment facilities of the Hachinohe area wide area municipal office association was flooded by the tsunami, and the damage amount was about 2 million yen.[154].


Most of the damage in Iwate Prefecture was caused by the tsunami.Since the damage was particularly large, along with Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures3 affected prefecturesCollectively referred to as.

The coastal area of ​​Iwate Prefecture is close to the coastline, and the flat land is narrow, so the area flooded by the tsunami is 58 km.2It was the smallest in the three prefectures.However, due to the widespread fishing port and urban area on the narrow flat land, the population of the flooded area is about 3, and the flooded area has a population of about 11.The population densityIs 1,900 people/km2It was the largest in the three prefectures.

Tsunami height increases in the central and southern part of the prefectureRias coastTherefore, it is a tsunami-prone area and measures against tsunami (breakwater-Seawall) Was the largest in Japan.Past tsunami folklore and stone monuments (Natural disaster tradition monument) Remained everywhere, and the residents were highly aware of disaster prevention, and many people took evacuation actions, but the tsunami, which was much larger than expected, caused enormous damage.

Rikuzentakata CityThen, most of the designated shelters such as the civic center and the civic gymnasium are almostceilingMost of the evacuees died and the entire city was devastated.A little less than 4 people were killed, including 27 people killed in the flooding up to the 1,800th floor at Takada Hospital.City officials too13A weak 113 people were killed, and the casualty rate for the flooded population is Miyagi Prefecture.OnagawaIt was the second highest, at 11.72%, which was the same rate as Otsuchi Town.

Otsuchi TownThen, of the 60 staff members who were preparing for the disaster response headquarters at the government office, they were the mayor at that time.Hiroaki Kato[155]A little less than 30 people were killed, including more than 1,300 people died.There was also a fire.The casualty rate for the inundated area population was the second highest after Onagawa Town in Miyagi Prefecture, at 11.72%, the same rate as Rikuzentakata City.

KamaishiThen, tsunami evacuation training was also conducted at the Unosumai District Disaster Prevention Center, which was originally a facility mainly for evacuation after a disaster, so 244 people were evacuated (most likely) and 210 people were killed. About 1,050 people were killed.FormerNippon Steel Kamaishi Rugby ClubWas a player and chairman of the Kamaishi Rugby UnionMasafumi Sano,[156],Masters Athletics104-year-old who had a world record inTakashi ShimokawaraWas also sacrificed[157]. Also,Guinness World RecordsThe deepest in the world that was also certifiedKamaishi harbor entrance breakwaterWas destroyed[158]..While the Unosumai area was a tragedy that accounted for more than half of the victims in the city, there was also a partial success of tsunami education called "Kamaishi's miracle (event)".Municipal Kamaishi Higashi Junior High SchoolThen, immediately after the earthquake, the students started to run to the evacuation site at their own discretion, and when they saw it, they were adjacent to each other.Unosumai SmallThe children continued.After arriving at the nursing care facility at the first evacuation site and confirming the safety of all the members by line-up roll call, the junior high school students pulled the hands of the elementary school students and ran to higher ground under the education that was not bound by the assumption, and the local residents saw it. Also followed.The school was hit by a tsunami with a height of more than 10 m, and the first floor of the nursing care facility at the first evacuation site was submerged, but all about 1 students who went to school on the day were safe.[159]Met.In addition, the long-term care facility side, which saw the students evacuating further up, had moved the residents on the first floor to the third floor, so there were no casualties.

Yamada TownIn the long-term care health facility "Seaside Karo", 74 residents and 14 staff members died, and more than 750 people were killed.In addition to the tsunami, a big fire broke out.Former Funakoshi VillageThen, I had moved to a higher ground in the past, but as the memory of the tsunami faded, houses began to stand in the lowlands.[160].

Miyako cityTaro districtA huge tide embankment with a total length of 2433 m and a height of 10 m above sea level surrounds the area like a castle wall, and the inhabitants call it the Great Wall of China and declare it a "tsunami disaster prevention town". However, more than 185 people were killed, including the death of 500 people in the entire district due to the destruction and overflow of the tsunami.

Ofunato CityThen, 62 people died at the special nursing home for the elderly "Sanriku-no-en", and a total of more than 400 people were killed.

Besides this,Noda,TanohataBut it suffered a great deal of damage.


Miyagi prefecture was the closest to the epicenter and was a severe earthquake along with Fukushima and Ibaraki prefectures.As for the damage caused by the tsunami, the flooded area is 327 km.2And the inundated area has a population of about 33, both of which are the largest in the three prefectures, so only in Miyagi prefecture.Great Hanshin-Awaji EarthquakeHas caused more casualties.

The northern part of the prefecture is a tsunami-prone area because it is a rias-type coast where the tsunami height increases like the central and southern coast of Iwate prefecture, and measures against tsunami (breakwaters and tide embankments) were taken.The traditions of past tsunamis and stone monuments remained everywhere, and the residents were highly conscious of disaster prevention, and many people took evacuation actions.

The central and southern part of the prefecture was a monotonous coastline, but the water depth was shallow.Sendai TaiwanThe speed of the tsunami slowed down, and the later tsunami caught up and the tsunami height increased.It took an hour before the attack due to the slowdown, but the past tsunami was hundreds of years ago in the central and southern regions compared to the northern region, and the tsunami was hit by an unimaginable tsunami while the residents' awareness was low.Due to the wide plain, it was flooded several kilometers inland and suffered great damage.

Kesennuma CityThen, 59 people died at the Long-Term Care Health Facility "Riverside Haruno" and 12 people died on a hill 93 m above sea level where the residents of the Sugishita area evacuated, and the number of victims reached more than 1,350.In addition, the tsunami caused the fuel tank for fishing boats to collapse, causing heavy oil to spill over a wide area, causing a fire and a major fire that continued to burn all night.A large amount of debris on fireKesennuma BayFloating inside, it is the largest manned island in Tohoku(I.e.It burned down, and the islanders stopped the spread of fire. "Tsunami fireSee also.

Minamisanriku TownSo, it ’s a three-story building.Disaster prevention measures office buildingForty-two town officials, such as being submerged to the rooftop of the building, are five stories high.Public Shizugawa HospitalWas submerged near the ceiling on the 4th floor, and 107 out of 72 inpatients and 3 staff members died.also,Above sea levelMore than 15 people were killed, including 1 people who died when the first floor of the special nursing home for the elderly "Jieen", which was on a hill of 49 m, was submerged.

Onagawa is the closest to the epicenterRias coastA fierce tsunami struck the town, and the center was almost submerged to a height of 20 m above sea level, and the collapse of the reinforced building was conspicuous due to the strong pulling waves.The first floor of the designated evacuation center, Onagawa Hospital (Onagawa Regional Medical Center), was completely submerged even though it was on a hill 16 meters above sea level.XNUMX BankAt the Onagawa branch, 13 employees who had been evacuated to the roof were washed away and 12 died. The number of victims was about 900, and the casualty rate to the inundated area population was 11.97%, which was the highest in the disaster.On the other hand, in the 5-story Lifelong Learning Center, although it was submerged near the roof, it was sealed with iron doors and had no windows.boilerA little less than 30 people evacuated to the room were safe.

IshinomakiHas caused more than 3,700 casualties, the highest number in the disaster.

Old on the ria coast in the northeastern part of the cityOgachi Town, OldKitakami Town, OldKawakitaThe coast was almost completely destroyed.Ogatsu BayThe three-story Ogatsu Hospital, located in the innermost cove of the hospital, struggled to carry inpatients to the rooftop, but the tsunami that exceeded the rooftop caused all 3 inpatients and 40 staff members. 30 dead or missing[161],Kitakami River OfEstuaryAt the Ishinomaki City Kitakami General Branch on the north side, only 57 of the 3 staff and evacuees were survivors.The tsunami runs up with a tremendous force while flooding the Kitakami River, and is located 5 km upstream.Ishinomaki City Okawa Elementary SchoolIn (former Hebei Town), 78 children and 11 staff members who had been evacuated on foot were washed away, and only 4 children and 1 staff member were saved.[162][163].

The southern part of the city was the former Ishinomaki city, and in Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima, the largest urban area with about 12 people spread out facing the sea.For this reason, the number of victims is large, and it is difficult to move around the city.TransportationTraffic jamWas swallowed by the tsunami as it was, and many people were killed.Was the former mayorKimio DoiWas also sacrificed[164].

Higashi Matsushima CityThen 36% of the city area was flooded.In the Nobiru area, the tsunami that rushed from Sendai Bay (Ishinomaki Bay) on the east side crossed a little less than 2 kilometers inland, and on the west side.Matsushima BayFlowed into.About 13 people were killed in the Nobiru and Omagari districts, including the deaths of 56 people in the gymnasium of Nobiru Elementary School and 1,100 residents of the special nursing home for the elderly "Furuen".Japan Air Self-Defense ForceMatsushima BaseIt was also flooded and many aircraft were damaged.On the other hand, in the Nobiru area, Yoshifumi Sato, a civilian, spent 10 years building an evacuation staircase and an evacuation hut on the rocky mountain behind his house.Residents in the neighborhood treated Sato as a stranger, saying, "The tsunami can't come this far," and called this shelter ".Mt. SatoAs a result, about 70 people escaped the damage from the tsunami.[165][166].

Tagajo CityIs in SendaiBed townThere were many large suburban stores along the two large arterial roads.The eastern Sunaoshi River faces the seaEstuaryIt was only a small part of the city, and even the citizens were less aware that it was a city of the sea, and those outside the city who passed through the arterial road were even less aware.A tsunami suddenly struck between the buildings while the road was heavily congested due to the turmoil of the earthquake.The number of victims was less than 2, mainly in the cars on the two arterial roads, and half of them lived outside the city.

Sendai cityIs 104.7 million (2011)3/1Estimated population[167]To holdGovernment-designated cityIt was, but in the coastal areaSendai PlainMost of the development is limitedUrbanization control areaAnd because the countryside was widespread[168], There was almost no inundation in the densely populated areas.However, it is the main settlement in the coastal area.Wakabayashi WardArahama district andMiyagino WardNakano Gamo district was destroyed, and againSendai PortThe number of victims was more than 800, mainly in the industrial and commercial areas of the area.In Wakabayashi Ward, 60% of the area was flooded, and the state of flooding the countryside to 3-4 km inland was photographed by an NHK helicopter, and it was widely reported.Located in ArahamaSendai City Fire HeliportWas also damaged, and equipment other than the two helicopters that took off before the arrival of the tsunami became unusable, so relocation to the inland area is planned.

Natori CityThen 27% of the city area was flooded.The city center was inland, but on the coastYuriageA little less than 1,000 people were killed, including catastrophic damage to the district.A large truck collapsed due to the shaking of the earthquake at Yuriage Bridge, causing an accident that killed a passenger car driver in the oncoming lane and closing the road, causing traffic congestion in the area, which also contributed to the increase in casualties. rice field.Sendai AirportThe flooding of the runway was widely reported at home and abroad.

Iwanuma City48% of the city area is flooded and less than 200 peopleWatari TownBut 48% of the town was flooded and less than 300 people were killed.Like Sendai and Natori, the city center was inland, but the coastal settlements were destroyed.Former in Watari TownWomen's footballAthlete'sEriko Sato[169]Was also sacrificed.

Yamamoto TownThen 38% of the town area was flooded.82 people were killed in the care house attached to the nursing home "Umekaen", and Joban Yamamotodriving school5 shuttle buses were drunk by the tsunami, killing 39 trainees and instructors, etc.[170], A little less than 700 people were killed.

other than this,Shichigahama TownBut it suffered a great deal of damage.

on the other hand,Matsushima Town,ShiogamaThe damage was minor compared to the surrounding local governments.this isUrato IslandsAnd in the backMatsushima BayIt is presumed that the islands in the area alleviated and dispersed the power of the tsunami.[171]..However, it was only minor compared to the surroundings, and there was no change in the flooding of the houses and the casualties.


AkitaThe damage was 6 buildings that were partially damaged and 12 injured.The only prefecture in the 6 prefectures of Tohoku that has no deathsIt became.


YamagataThe damage was 3 dead, 29 injured, 37 completely destroyed and 80 partially destroyed.


In Fukushima prefecture, the entire area offshore became the epicenter area, and it was a severe earthquake along with Miyagi prefecture and Ibaraki prefecture.

As for the damage caused by the tsunami, the flooded area is 112 km.2It exceeds Iwate Prefecture.However, the coastal areas of Fukushima Prefecture have no bays or coves, and due to the shallow terrain.Fishing portIt was a prefecture that was not suitable for the city and it was difficult to form an urban area centered on the port (List of fishing ports in JapanAccording to the report, there are 111 locations in Iwate prefecture and 114 locations in Miyagi prefecture, compared to 10 locations in Fukushima prefecture).Since the central city area of ​​the coastal municipalities was several kilometers inland from the coastline, the inundated area population was less than 7, and the inundated area population density was 600 people / km.2It can be said that both are the smallest in the three prefectures, and the number of victims is proportionally smaller (however, the population of the flooded area is in Miyagi prefecture).15And the victim16Therefore, the sacrifice rate is almost the same).

The coast of Fukushima Prefecture is a shallow and monotonous coastline that extends from the south of Sendai City to Chiba Prefecture, and because there was no tsunami tradition in the past, the tsunami struck while the residents' awareness was low.Three large places that existed in the vast epicenter areaFaultOne of the destruction was in the sea near the northern part of Ibaraki prefecture, and in the southern part of Fukushima prefecture.IwakiIt seems that the tsunami arrived at the earliest and moved northward, and complicatedly intersected with the movement of the tsunami that occurred off the coast of Miyagi prefecture and moved southward.Near Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (Okuma Town) At 15 m, adjacentTomioka TownSince the tsunami height is 20 m in the vicinity, which is extremely high even though there is no particular difference in the topography compared to the surroundings, it is estimated that the tsunami from the north-south direction amplified each other in this area. To.

There are more than 100 casualties in the municipality where the fishing port is located,Soma CityAbout 450 people,Minamisoma CityMore than 650 people, more than 350 people in Iwaki City,Namie TownA little less than 200 peopleShinchi TownMore than 100 people were killed in the disaster, and the damage was enormous.

In addition, in Futaba DistrictFutaba Town,Okuma Town,Tomioka Town,Naraha Town,Hirono TownThe coast was also severely damaged, but the coastal settlements were so small or few that they killed dozens of people each.

Futaba-gun has been active since the past when the fishing port was underdeveloped and the industry was scarce.TEPCOBecame a power supply center forFukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant,Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Station,Hirono Thermal Power StationIt was one of the leading power sources in Japan.Due to the total power loss that Japan has never experienced due to the earthquakeFukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant AccidentWill lead to the occurrence of.

In Okuma TownFutaba HospitalIn the hospitaldementia患者と、隣接する老人介護施設の高齢者のうち227人が一時取り残された。原子炉が水素爆発して20 - 30 km圏内の住民10万人以上が各地の避難所へ避難する混乱の中、132人は医師・看護師を同乗させないまま観光用バスに乗せられ、13時間かけて200 km移動した。残りの95人は5日後に自衛隊によって救助されたが、最終的に50人がDebilitating deathdid.

In this way, in Fukushima Prefecture, there are many cases where elderly people are sacrificed while moving from one evacuation center to another due to forced evacuation.Earthquake-related deathThe number of certified persons is also the largest.

In addition, Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant AccidentCaused byRadioactive materialSpreadFutabaIt has spread over a wide area of ​​Fukushima prefecture. 12 at 20:25 on the 20th in Minamisoma City, XNUMX km north μSV / hAt 15 o'clock on the 4th, the maximum value of 40 μSV / h was measured in Iwaki City, 24 km south.It was a temporary rise that passed by with the wind because it was sunny, and it decreased over time.The release of radioactive materials peaked on March 3, and at 15 o'clock, 9 μSv / h was measured near the main gate. On the afternoon of the 11,930th, the wind from the southeast flowed toward the northwest. 15 km awayIitate VillageThen it surged to 16 μSV / h at 23:18 and 45 μSV / h at XNUMX:XNUMX.Date City60km awayFukushimaHowever, it surged to 17 μSV / h at 22:19 and measured 24 μSV / h at 17:XNUMX.Unfortunately, rain (snow) began to fall in various parts of the prefecture from around XNUMX:XNUMX where the southeastern wind continued for a long time and high-concentration radioactive materials were flowing in, so the radioactive materials fell to the ground and settled in the soil. bottom.This caused serious soil contamination that extended to the northwest.

Iitate villageDate CountyKawamata TownSome areas of Date City received evacuation designations one month later, and some areas of Date City received evacuation designations three months later. There will be tens of thousands of voluntary evacuees such as evacuation.

Fukushima Prefecture suffered a great deal of damage from the shaking of the earthquake itself, and the number of victims was the highest.InlandNakadoriDamage is conspicuous even in rural areasShirakawaThen, Rokutanyama collapsed on a large scale and 13 people were sacrificed.SukagawaThen.Fujinuma DamA bank with a height of 18 m and a length of 133 m broke down at once, and about 150 million tons of water turned into flash floods with a height of 2-3 m involving trees and attacked the waterfall area more than 1 km away, 8 people. Was sacrificed[172]..This is the first time in Japan that a dam has collapsed due to an earthquake, and in 1999 worldwide.Taiwan921 earthquakeIt is rare after the Ishioka Dam that broke down in.also,KoriyamaThen, a part of the city hall collapsed and one person was killed.

In the central and southern part of Nakadori from Shirakawa City to Koriyama City, the damage to houses is more noticeable than inland cities, towns and villages in other prefectures.Yabuki TownThen, 30% of the total number of houses were completely destroyed.Kagamiishi TownIn Koriyama City, 23% of the total number of houses were completely destroyed, and in Koriyama City, 2 were completely destroyed, both of which were the largest inland municipalities without tsunami damage.

One month later, on April 1, there was an inland earthquake with an epicenter near the Idosawa Fault in the southern part of Iwaki City.Fukushima Prefecture Hamadori Earthquake) Occurred (seismic intensity 6 lower).Due to this earthquake, the Idosawa Fault, the Shionohira Fault, and the Yunodake Fault in the central part of the city move simultaneously over several tens of kilometers, causing faults (maximum head of 2 m) to appear and landslides throughout the city. , Four people were killed one after another due to cracks in the ground.


IbarakiOffshore is the epicenter area, and above thatKanto PlainDue to the weak ground, a wide range of severe earthquakes were observed along with Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures.

As for the damage caused by the shaking of the earthquake itself, 6 municipalities observed shaking with a seismic intensity of 29 or higher, which was as many as 26 municipalities in Miyagi prefecture and 33 municipalities in Fukushima prefecture.NEXCO East JapanInstalled at each interchange ofSeismographThe highest seismic intensity was observed at 6 points in Miyagi prefecture and 6 points in Fukushima prefecture, followed by 6 points in Ibaraki prefecture.Mito Minami ICMet.

As a result, the damage to houses due to shaking was the second largest after Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures, and the number of victims was also the second highest after Fukushima prefecture.

Tokai villageHitachinaka Thermal Power StationNine workers were working near the chimney 200 m, but four people who fell along with the steel floorboards were sacrificed.WhereaboutsThen.Rokko BridgeCollapsed and one person was sacrificed.

Press regulation

At the time of the earthquakeDemocratic governmentAbout the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plantCore meltRecognizing the fact that it was (meltdown), he continued to avoid using this term in official announcements because he decided to avoid the panic and confusion associated with the publication of this fact.And he did not tell the exact facts at the official announcement about the situation of the accident.On the contrary, such an attitude caused distrust of the Japanese government, mainly overseas (mainly major Western media), and said, "Fukushima and the metropolitan area have been seriously damaged by radiation, but the Japanese government is hiding the facts." Speculation spread, leading to the situation where embassies in each country called on their citizens to evacuate from Japan.Later, from objective facts, it turned out that such recognition was not just speculation, and it was not a worrying situation.While major media outlets involved in the earthquake report expressed some remorse for the responsibility that fueled excessive anxiety through editorials, they criticized the Japanese government for calling for such speculation due to the inaccuracy of the government's announcement.

The damage was widespread, and evacuees were dispersed in facilities other than designated shelters.Especially due to lack of fuel, it was difficult to move and warm up by car in the disaster area for a long time.Also in Fukushima prefectureFukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant AccidentbyExposureTrucks turned back for fear of, making it difficult for supplies to reach mainly in coastal areas.[318][319].Ou MountainsCross overNational Route 347As usual, some roads were closed in winter, but there were cases where vehicles heading for relief from the Sea of ​​Japan side returned without knowing the information.[320].

In areas such as Iwate, Miyagi, and the coasts of the three prefectures of Fukushima, where buildings and infrastructure were destroyed and urban functions were lost due to the tsunami, discussions were held on the direction of reconstruction, and some projects started. Has been done.Specific ideas include the following[391][394].

  • Relocation to hills-Reconstruction of lost urban areas and settlements by relocating to hills instead of the traditional tsunami inundation areas.It is planned that the national and local governments will purchase the land in the disaster area and carry out group relocation at public expense.[391].
  • Local reconstruction with ground raising --- Reconstruction after raising the ground to reduce the risk of tsunami in the conventional tsunami inundation area.There are plans for land readjustment methods and projects in which the national and local governments purchase and collectively maintain the urban areas that serve as bases.[391].
  • Separation of work and residence-Housing, government offices, hills, hospitals, etc. will be relocated to hills and raised ground, while industrial facilities will remain in the conventional tsunami inundation area.Considered in areas where fisheries and tourism are the main industries and full relocation is difficult[394].
  • Development of new businesses taking advantage of reconstruction projects-Collaboration of fisheries and fisheries, private investment in agriculture,Energy Conservation-再生 可能 エネルギー,smart gridIntroduction (eco town) etc.[394].
  • Strengthening tsunami protection facilities- SeawallIn addition to restoration and strengthening of highways and railroadsEmbankmentSomething that adds a function as an embankment,Disaster prevention forest,Green spaceThose that provide disaster prevention sites such as.According to Miyagi Prefecture's reconstruction plan, the southern part of the Sendai coast is a tide embankment along the coastline, and inside it is a multiple defense that forms a belt-shaped zone in the order of disaster prevention forest / green land, agricultural land, embankment road, industrial land, embankment railway, and residential area. I'm thinking of doing[394].
  • Strengthening tsunami evacuation facilities --- Buildings and towers for emergency evacuation of tsunami, roads for tsunami evacuation, and restoration and strengthening of primary, secondary and refugee shelters.Miyagi Prefecture's reconstruction plan envisions strengthening emergency evacuation facilities, especially in industrial areas (lowlands) where work and residence separation is planned.[394].
  • Strengthening support for tsunami evacuation behavior --Disaster prevention education to raise awareness of evacuation from tsunami, inheritance of earthquake disaster experience, etc.[394].

Fukushima Prefecture announced in July 2012 that the Fukushima Tourism Reconstruction Support Center[395]”, And introduces oral speakers (storytellers, 2014 people as of September 9), inspection destinations, volunteer destinations, and model courses. The number of oral speakers mediated by the center in 176 was 2013.[396].

Project completion rate aggregated at the end of March 10 2021 years after the earthquake[397].

Disaster public housing 100%, private housing housing 100%, ground and coastal construction 85%, coastal disaster prevention forest 88%, river measures (directly controlled section) 100%, river measures (local government section) 97%, hill relocation 100%, Roads (directly controlled sections) 100%, roads (local government sections) 99%, reconstruction roads 92%, ports 100%, fishing ports 97%, farmland 94%, railways 100%, schools 99%, water facilities 99%, sewers 100% , Disposal of disaster waste 100% (1843 million tons)[205]

Problems / Issues

After the earthquakevolunteerHealth regulations for activities and support vehiclesRoad Traffic LawIt became clear that the restrictions imposed by the current laws and regulations, such as the regulation of the above, are obstacles to the reconstruction.Since the delay in reconstruction has caused secondary damage to the economy and livelihoods, the relevant local governments have high expectations for the designation of special disaster zones and special legislation.In Rikuzentakata City, Iwate Prefecture, where the city area was destroyed, large-scale measures such as relocating the entire village to a hill are being considered, but there are still many issues.

Even after the earthquake, it landed in September 2011 with the largest force after the war.Typhoon 15The disaster area has been flooded extensively, causing damage such as rising levels of contaminated water at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

Since the national government and Fukushima Prefecture do not recognize long-term evacuation households due to the nuclear accident as long-term evacuation households under the Disaster Reconstruction Assistance Act, they are associated with long-term evacuation due to the nuclear accident.Disaster-related deathMeasures (especially called "nuclear-related deaths") and measures to support the reconstruction of the lives of evacuees from nuclear power plants are required.

In the coastal cities, towns and villages on the Sanriku coast, the population is declining as civil engineering workers are withdrawn and employment is decreasing as reconstruction and disaster prevention works such as seawalls are completed.Even in Hamadori, Fukushima Prefecture, where the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident occurred, many former residents evacuated and did not return.Sendai City, which is the destination of the inflow, has been over-migrated since 2011.[398].

Various movements after the earthquake
