Japan's magnitude 9 earthquake and 30m high tsunami warning: Japanese government survey finds

A Japanese government survey warned of a massive earthquake and tsunami.

  • The only way to avoid a massive tsunami is to evacuate residents.

Japan’s magnitude 9 earthquake and 30m high tsunami warning: Japanese government survey finds
On Tuesday, a Japanese government panel warned of a massive earthquake and tsunami.
A Japanese government panel warned on Monday that a 30-meter-high tsunami could hit northern Hokkaido and northeastern Iwate if a 9-magnitude earthquake along the Pacific coast of Japan.

The report released the worst-case scenarios and expressed concern that earthquakes centered on the Japanese Trench and the northern Kuril Sea could be significant.
 
The survey acknowledged that it is not easy to calculate the probability of an earthquake, but emphasized that a large tsunami occurred every 300 to 400 years and the last earthquake was observed in the 17th century.
 
Japan has killed more than 15,000 people in the northeastern region due to the tsunami since the March 2011 earthquake of magnitude 9.0.
In addition, Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant managed by Tokyo Electric Power Company suffered tsunami damage,
The dog’s reactor collapsed.
If a massive earthquake and tsunami become a threat, as the Japanese government warned, the already collapsed Fukushima nuclear power plant will be threatened again.
Tokyo Electric Power said it would review the latest plans and analyze the company’s impact on ongoing preventive measures against the tsunami.
Tokyo Electric Power Company expects the restoration of the Fukushima nuclear power plant, which was hit by the tsunami, will take decades.

“The massive earthquake of this class will be difficult to deal with by developing solid infrastructure,” said Kenji Satake, a professor and panel director at Tokyo University. “Basic policies will be evacuated to save the lives of the people,” he said.
 
The Japanese seaport, at the center of this earthquake and tsunami warning, is the marine trench part of the Pacific Rim of Northeast Japan.
It extends from the Kuril Islands to the northern end of the Iz Islands, and at its deepest point is 26,398 ft.
The Kuril-Kamchatka Sea is connected to the north, and the Izu-Ogasawara Sea to the south by 800 km.
The sustained movement in the settlement zone of the Japanese Sea District is one of the major causes of tsunamis and earthquakes in the region, including the tsunami that occurred on March 11, 2011.
According to panel estimates, an earthquake along the Chishima Sea could be 9.3 magnitude.”Overseas earthquakes can shake parts of eastern Hokkaido with a magnitude of 6 to 7 Japanese magnitude of 0 to 7, which is the same,” the report said.
