Abstract

On March 11, 2011, exactly ten years ago, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake hit the Tohoku region, Japan. With the following massive tsunamis hitting the coastal area, approximately 18,000 people were killed and hundreds of thousands of buildings and communities were destroyed. While this tragedy was disheartening and traumatized the local communities, it also provides us with important lessons on how to be prepared for an earthquake and tsunami disaster. Professors Ito and Nishishiba have visited the region several times with PSU students and community members from Oregon. In this presentation they will talk about what they learned from people in the Tohoku community and what we can do to be better prepared for the “Big One” in the North Pacific region.
