Another case of the 1995 Kobe earthquake disaster; a disaster simulation study of an earthquake that hits Kobe at a different time

Another case of the 1995 Kobe earthquake disaster; a disaster simulation study of an earthquake that hits Kobe at a different time

Chigaku Zasshi = Journal of Geography 110(6): 915-923

Earthquake disasters should be determined on not only by seismologic characteristics, but also by social activities and circumstantial conditions of the affected region. It is important to learn from actual earthquake damage and loss. And it is also necessary to research important hidden criteria. The 1995 Hanshin-Awaji (Kobe) Earthquake Disaster occurred early morning at 5:46 on the 17th of January. People were killed in their homes, and most human casualties were found in rooms. In this paper, a different earthquake disaster scenario is simulated. A case of disaster at 11:46, the 17th Jan. 1995, when social activities were assumed to be very high. If a big one should hit at that time, fire and human casualties are expected to occur in various places and facilities, for example, in not only residential areas but also in stores, traffic, industrial centers, and so on. Emergency response is expected to become more confused.
