The Japan Meteorological Agency issued a warning, and evacuation orders were made for approximately 880,000 people in these three prefectures. There have been rivers overflowing in various locations, and as of August 29 the Cabinet Office has announced that there was inundation above floor level in 82 buildings, and below in 318. The overall extent of the damage is as yet unknown, and it is anticipated that it may expand further.
The Peace Boat Disaster Volunteer Center (PBV) dispatched staff members to the affected areas on August 30 for initial damage assessment to determine the support needed by the local people in the area. On the following day, a team with tools and machines for house cleaning and preservation was also dispatched. We are working closely with the local authorities and relief organizations, and have implemented emergency relief activities needed by the people.
We seek your kind understanding and generous contribution to enable us to support those affected by the disaster for early recovery of their communities.
