"Identify, assess & monitor disaster risks, and Early Warning"

〔Efforts in Hyogo〕

In addition to raise people's awareness of potential regional disaster risk, Hyogo is developing diverse information system to provide regional disaster prevention information appropriately and rapidly.


Preparation and release of hazard maps

Hyogo distributes local hazard maps which outline disaster prone area due to earthquake, tsunami, heavy rainfall, high tide, and landslides to all its citizens and makes this information available on its website.

At the same time, Hyogo published aerial photographs and computer graphics-based tsunami video on its official website for citizens to realize the disaster risks and the danger in an easy-to-understand manner.
