A soldier carries an elderly woman on his back as people are evacuated to a shelter at Kesennuma city in Miyagi prefecture, Japan. Under the revised plan, the government will put stronger measures in place to cope with nuclear disasters in light of the Fukushima No.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed at a meeting of the Central Disaster Prevention Council to take disaster prevention measures in anticipation of a major earthquake directly hitting Tokyo or one predicted to occur in the Nankai Trough off central and western parts of the country. The Fire and Disaster Management Agency has found in a study that a little less than 30 percent of municipalities had not created such lists as of last April.
To cope with a nuclear disaster, the government will distribute iodine pills, which help prevent thyroid cancer, beforehand to those staying within 5 km of atomic plants.
The revised plan also expands the area that needs special preparations for a nuclear disaster from 10 km from the facilities to 30 km, and urges local governments to set guidelines such as evacuation areas and means of transportation during evacuations.


Japan is an archipelago made up of many islands, of which there are four main ones: Honshu, Shikoku, Hokkaido, and Kyushu.
The public perception of Japan, at home and abroad, is disproportionately influenced by Tokyo’s outsized contribution to Japanese political, economic, and social life. Another anecdote: I previously worked as a systems engineer for a large computer consultancy, primarily in making back office systems for Japanese universities.
The overwhelming response of Japanese engineering to the challenge posed by an earthquake larger than any in the last century was to function exactly as designed.
A few friends of mine have suggested coming to Japan to pitch in with the recovery efforts.
Miyagi is the prefecture hardest hit by the tsunami, and Japanese TV is reporting that they expect fatalities in the prefecture to exceed 10,000.


Japan’s economy just got a serious monkey wrench thrown into it, but it will be back up to speed fairly quickly. Japan is exceptionally well-prepared to deal with natural disasters: it has spent more on the problem than any other nation, largely as a result of frequently experiencing them.
