Event Summary

 UPDATE: Friday, April 1, 2011 UN OCHA Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Sitrep #16

Infrastructure

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport reports that most of the Tohoku region’s main land, sea and air routes are open. 99 percent of highways and main routes have been repaired, except for those near the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. More than 37,200 vehicles are now passing through the Tohoku Expressway per day, 1.3 times more than the regular traffic before the earthquake due to the large number of emergency vehicles. Express buses are carrying 4,660 passengers per day into and out of the region, 2.4 times more than that before the disaster. However, many local roads and residential roads in the affected area are still impassable, blocked with debris and this is hampering the delivery of aid to those staying in their own homes and in smaller evacuation centers.

All ports and airports are now open, except for Sendai Airport which is reserved for humanitarian aid. In other airports 71 per cent of domestic flights have resumed. Railway tracks are open for 62 percent of bullet trains and 60 per cent of local trains. The interim assessment of the East Japan Railway Company has assessed half of the total railway tracks and found that 23 train stations and 22km worth of railway tracks have been completely washed away in the region.

Electricity has been restored by 96.3 percent in Tohoku, leaving only 180,000 households without power.

Gas supplies have been restored to roughly 32 per cent of households and 340,000 households remain without. Because 4 out of 7 supply bases of liquefied petroleum (LP) gas are not operational, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry will release 40,000 tons from the national reserve for the first time from 4 April.

To date, 87.9 per cent of water has been restored to buildings and only 260,000 households in eight prefectures are still without running water. Currently 320 water trucks are deployed and 200 more will shortly deliver water to those without access to tap water.

Regardless of the on-going recovery, the fuel shortage remains a serious issue in the affected areas, exacerbated by a limited number of operational fuel stations and increasing needs. The Government plans to  spend US$210 million (1.7 billion JPY) to procure of tankers and install makeshift fuel stations.

UPDATE: Friday, March 11, 2011 15:24 +0900 (JST)

 have gathered at the Prime Minister’s Office, where an emergency task force has been set up to respond to the earthquake.  The task force will gather information on damage and prepare for possible tsunami.
Railway services have ground to a halt.

Shinkansen bullet trains have halted operations around the country, including northeastern Japan where the earthquake occurred.

Train operations are also suspended in northeastern Japan, as well as in Tokyo, where railway companies are checking the safety of lines.

EVALUATION
SEA LEVEL READINGS CONFIRM THAT A TSUNAMI HAS BEEN GENERATED
WHICH COULD CAUSE WIDESPREAD DAMAGE. AUTHORITIES SHOULD TAKE
APPROPRIATE ACTION IN RESPONSE TO THIS THREAT. THIS CENTER WILL
CONTINUE TO MONITOR SEA LEVEL DATA TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT AND
SEVERITY OF THE THREAT.
A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE FIRST WAVE MAY NOT BE THE
LARGEST. TSUNAMI WAVE HEIGHTS CANNOT BE PREDICTED AND CAN VARY
SIGNIFICANTLY ALONG A COAST DUE TO LOCAL EFFECTS. THE TIME FROM
ONE TSUNAMI WAVE TO THE NEXT CAN BE FIVE MINUTES TO AN HOUR, AND
THE THREAT CAN CONTINUE FOR MANY HOURS AS MULTIPLE WAVES ARRIVE.
FOR ALL AREAS – WHEN NO MAJOR WAVES ARE OBSERVED FOR TWO HOURS
AFTER THE ESTIMATED TIME OF ARRIVAL OR DAMAGING WAVES HAVE NOT
OCCURRED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS THEN LOCAL AUTHORITIES CAN ASSUME
THE THREAT IS PASSED. DANGER TO BOATS AND COASTAL STRUCTURES CAN
CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL HOURS DUE TO RAPID CURRENTS. AS LOCAL
CONDITIONS CAN CAUSE A WIDE VARIATION IN TSUNAMI WAVE ACTION THE
ALL CLEAR DETERMINATION MUST BE MADE BY LOCAL AUTHORITIES.
ESTIMATED INITIAL TSUNAMI WAVE ARRIVAL TIMES AT FORECAST POINTS
WITHIN THE WARNING AND WATCH AREAS ARE GIVEN BELOW. ACTUAL
ARRIVAL TIMES MAY DIFFER AND THE INITIAL WAVE MAY NOT BE THE
LARGEST. A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE TIME BETWEEN
SUCCESSIVE WAVES CAN BE FIVE MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.
