THE PUERTO RICO COMPONENT OF THE NATIONAL TSUNAMI HAZARD AND MITIGATION PROGRAM (PR-NTHMP)
 
15:45
2014 Fall Meeting Section: Natural Hazards Session: Advances in Tsunami Hazard Mitigation and Response I Title: THE PUERTO RICO COMPONENT OF THE NATIONAL TSUNAMI HAZARD AND MITIGATION PROGRAM (PR-NTHMP) Authors: Huerfano Moreno, V A, University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez, Mayaguez, PR, United States Hincapie -Cardenas, C M, University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez, Mayaguez, PR, United States Abstract: Tsunami hazard assessment, detection, warning, education and outreach efforts are intended to reduce losses to life and property. The Puerto Rico Seismic Network (PRSN) is participating in an effort with local and federal agencies, to developing tsunami hazard risk reduction strategies under the National Tsunami Hazards and Mitigation Program (NTHMP). This grant supports the TsunamiReady program which is the base of the tsunami preparedness and mitigation in PR. The Caribbean region has a documented history of damaging tsunamis that have affected coastal areas. The seismic water waves originating in the prominent fault systems around PR are considered to be a near-field hazard for Puerto Rico and the Virgin islands (PR/VI) because they can reach coastal areas within a few minutes after the earthquake. Sources for local, regional and tele tsunamis have been identified and modeled and tsunami evacuation maps were prepared for PR. These maps were generated in three phases: First, hypothetical tsunami scenarios on the basis of the parameters of potential underwater earthquakes were developed. Secondly, each of these scenarios was simulated. The third step was to determine the worst case scenario (MOM). The run-ups were drawn on GIS referenced maps and aerial photographs. These products are being used by emergency managers to educate the public and develop mitigation strategies. Online maps and related evacuation products are available to the public via the PR-TDST (PR Tsunami Decision Support Tool). Currently all the 44 coastal municipalities were recognized as TsunamiReady by the US NWS. The main goal of the program is to declare Puerto Rico as TsunamiReady, including two cities that are not coastal but could be affected by tsunamis. Based on these evacuation maps, tsunami signs were installed, vulnerability profiles were created, communication systems to receive and disseminate tsunami messages were installed in each TWFP, and tsunami response plans were approved. Also, the existing tsunami protocol and criteria in the PR/VI was updated. This paper describes the PR-NTHMP project, including the real time earthquake and tsunami monitoring as well as the specific protocols used to broadcast tsunami messages. The paper highlights tsunami hazards assessment, detection, warning, education and outreach in Puerto Rico.

Public Policy Issues Associated with Tsunami Hazard Mitigation, Response and Recovery:...

2014 Fall Meeting Section: Natural Hazards Session: Advances in Tsunami Hazard Mitigation and Response I Title: Public Policy Issues Associated with Tsunami Hazard Mitigation, Response and Recovery: Transferable Lessons from Recent Global Disasters Authors: Johnson, L, Self Employed, Washington, DC, United States Abstract: Since 2004, a sequence of devastating tsunamis has taken the lives of more than 300,000 people worldwide. The path of destruction left by each is typically measured in hundreds of meters to a few kilometers and its breadth can extend for hundreds even thousands of kilometers, crossing towns and countries and even traversing an entire oceanic basin. Tsunami disasters in Indonesia, Chile, Japan and elsewhere have also shown that the almost binary nature of tsunami impacts can present some unique risk reduction, response, recovery and rebuilding challenges, with transferable lessons to other tsunami vulnerable coastal communities around the world. In particular, the trauma can motivate survivors to relocate homes, jobs, and even whole communities to safer ground, sometimes at tremendous social and financial costs. For governments, the level of concentrated devastation usually exceeds the local capacity to respond and thus requires complex inter-governmental arrangements with regional, national and even international partners to support the recovery of impacted communities, infrastructure and economies. Two parallel projects underway in California since 2011—the SAFRR (Science Application for Risk Reduction) tsunami scenario project and the California Tsunami Policy Working Group (CTPWG)—have worked to digest key lessons from recent tsunami disasters, with an emphasis on identifying gaps to be addressed in the current state and federal policy framework to enhance tsunami risk awareness, hazard mitigation, and response and recovery planning ahead of disaster and also improve post-disaster implementation practices following a future California or U.S. tsunami event.

15:17
2014 Fall Meeting Section: Natural Hazards Session: Advances in Tsunami Hazard Mitigation and Response I Title: Analysis of Tsunami Evacuation Issues Using Agent Based Modeling. A Case Study of the 2011 Tohoku Tsunami in Yuriage, Natori. Authors: Koshimura, S, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan Takagi, H, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan Adriano, B, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan Mas, E, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan Hayashi, S, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan Abstract: The 2011 Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami reminded that nature can exceed structural countermeasures like seawalls, breakwaters or tsunami gates. In such situations it is a challenging task for people to find nearby haven. This event, as many others before, confirmed the importance of early evacuation, tsunami awareness and the need for developing much more resilient communities with effective evacuation plans. To support reconstruction activities and efforts on developing resilient communities in areas at risk, tsunami evacuation simulation can be applied to tsunami mitigation and evacuation planning. In this study, using the compiled information related to the evacuation behavior at Yuriage in Natori during the 2011 tsunami, we simulated the evacuation process and explored the reasons for the large number of fatalities in the area. It was found that residents did evacuate to nearby shelter areas, however after the tsunami warning was increased some evacuees decided to conduct a second step evacuation to a far inland shelter. Simulation results show the consequences of such decision and the outcomes when a second evacuation would not have been performed. The actual reported number of fatalities in the event and the results from simulation are compared to verify the model. The case study shows the contribution of tsunami evacuation models as tools to be applied for the analysis of evacuees’ decisions and the related outcomes. In addition, future evacuation plans and activities for reconstruction process and urban planning can be supported by the results provided from this kind of tsunami evacuation models.

Coastal Hazards: Coastal Storms and Erosion: Managing for an Uncertain Future
 
16:06
Coastal hazards are a widespread challenge that cost millions (and sometimes billions) of dollars in the U.S. every year due to property loss and spending on mitigation measures. Based on the most recent U.S. Census, over 39% of the U.S. population lives in areas that may undergo significant coastal flooding during a 100-year flood event. Additionally, six of the ten most expensive weather-related disasters in U.S. history have been caused by coastal storms. Reducing risk and responding to coastal hazards is an ongoing challenge that relies on close coordination and cooperation between geoscientists, coastal planners, emergency managers, and communities at all levels. This is the first presentation in the Critical Issues webinar, "Planning for Coastal Storm and Erosion Hazards". This webinar features an introductory talk and three case studies from around the U.S. will cover coastal storm and erosion hazards in the U.S., as well as examples of coastal hazard planning from the Pacific, Gulf, and Atlantic coasts, with a focus on how geoscience informs planning at all levels. Speakers from California, Texas, and Georgia will discuss the impacts of coastal storms and erosion, tools used for coastal hazard mitigation planning in their regions, and examples of community engagement and coordination. Our speakers include: Maria Honeycutt, Coastal Hazards Specialist, NOAA Office for Coastal Management Patrick Barnard, Research Geologist, USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center Jeff Taebel, FAICP, Houston-Galveston Area Council Jennifer Kline, Coastal Management Program, Georgia Department of Natural Resources This webinar is co-sponsored by: American Institute of Professional Geologists; American Meteorological Society; Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists; Consortium for Ocean Leadership; Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society; Federal Emergency Management Agency; Geological Society of America; Geo-Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers; International Association of Emergency Managers; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; U.S. Geological Survey.

Education for disaster preparedness
 
03:10
Education for disaster preparedness can provide life-saving and life-sustaining information and skills that protect in particular children and young people during and after emergencies. Disasters are not natural, they only occur when people lack preparedness or the ability to cope with hazards: it is the combination of an exposed and ill-prepared population or community with a hazard event that results in a disaster. Education therefore has a vital role to play in preparing communities and building disaster resilient societies and safe lives. UNESCO provides tools for integrating Disaster Risk Reduction into schools and provides training for teachers and educators on how to educate children and youth to prepare for disasters.

AFG-FHM - Afghanistan Flood Hazard Map
 
03:08
NATO's Geo experts have created a map that predicts likely flooding areas in Afghanistan, making it possible to plan preventive action for future flood seasons. The map is soon to be formally handed over to the Afghan authorities in Kabul. Afghanistan has always been a country with the periodic threat of flooding due to intense rainfall, the melting of snow or a combination of both phenomena. Every year, there are many fatalities and thousands of homes are destroyed as a result of these floods. Using innovative technologies based on highly accurate 3D models and flood observations, the NATO Consultation, Command and Control Agency (NC3A) Geo Team have created the Afghanistan Flood Hazard Map (AFG-FHM) to predict where floods are likely to occur and to visualise its potential extent. The map has been independently validated by renowned scientists, and has been described as extremely useful in predicting and preparing for future flooding. Due to the accuracy of the results it is possible to avoid constructing buildings in hazard zones or implement mitigations measures to protect infrastructure, thus saving millions of dollars in investments. The map can even help landmine clearing agencies prioritise their efforts thus preventing landmine migration. The map will be released to the Afghan national authorities shortly, which will assist in minimising disasters like those of the past, as well as help to prepare and plan for relief operations. Once the Afghanistan Flood Hazard has been released, more information and the map itself can be downloaded from the Afghanistan/ISAF section at http://www.cimicweb.org/. For press enquiries, please contact Emilie Couture: Emilie.Couture@nc3a.nato.int For technical inquires about the AFG-FHM please write to: emlyn.hagen@nc3a.nato.int

APA National Planning Awards 2012 - Florida Statewide Regional Evacuation Study Program
 
02:25
Best Practices in Hazard Mitigation and Disaster Planning Florida Statewide Regional Evacuation Study Program Florida Florida has long been a victim of disastrous hurricane seasons leaving the coastline, infrastructure, and citizens in dismay. The hurricanes during 2004 and 2005 were the most deadly with nearly 3,000 deaths and causing $50 billion in damages. The Florida Legislature appropriated $29 million to conduct a statewide study to improve evacuation planning and emergency disaster response. The primary purpose of The Florida Statewide Regional Evacuation Study Program was to map future evacuation strategies while incorporating traffic, housing, and other community improvements. The study enabled projection estimates for evacuation times and shelter demands by region and county. An important aspect of the study was using Light Detection and Ranging data (LiDar) to provide elevation data for every six inches of the Florida's coastline. This data greatly improves the accuracy of the SLOSH (Sea, Lake and Overland Surge from Hurricanes) Model and Surge Inundation Model results. The program resulted in an evacuation study for each one of Florida's 11 regions that is unique to that particular region. Additionally, Florida included other natural disasters in the study crucial to its region with the ability to analyze hazards such as wildfires and inland flooding.

In this video Paul Andersen explains how natural disasters (like earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and flooding) have affected and will continue to affect humans on the planet. Many of the natural hazards (like volcanoes and storms) can be studies directly and some (like earthquakes) can be predicted. Natural hazards will never go away but the damage can be limited. A K-12 teaching progression is also included.

Rupa Chaturvedi - Mobile Video & Disaster Mitigation
 
01:21
http://www.ideasproject.com/ Using Mobile Video Tools Can Mitigate Disasters In the recent situation where there was a tsunami warning for Hawaii, we were able to sit in our drawing rooms and view live coverage of people standing in their hotel balconies and capturing live stream of the situation, the water receding, and how the things were looking like through a mobile phone. And they were using Skype to relay that information back into the Internet forum. So a lot of bloggers were capturing that live stream and relaying it back to people like us, and we were watching every second count of what's going on. And I feel if some of these technologies and tools are available to the actual fishermen or people residing in coastal areas, and they're able to comprehend or view, through a video, exactly what happens at the time of a tsunami; what to look for, what to watch out for, for example the water recedes to that extent before coming back, I think they'll be far better prepared. They would know exactly what to expect and they can take some prevention measures. A lot of lives can be saved.

This movie shows physics-based computer simulation of a lava flow from the Pu'u'O'o vent on in Kilauea's southeast rift. Because lavas can "freeze in place", the flows are constantly evolving. Computer simulations like these help scientists plan for and mitigate lava flow hazards. For more tsunami information visit http://es.ucsc.edu/~ward.

Professor Daniel Aldrich - Building resilience in post-disaster recovery
 
13:18
Each year, natural disasters threaten the strength and stability of communities worldwide. Yet responses to the challenges of recovery vary greatly and in ways that aren't explained by the magnitude of the catastrophe or the amount of aid provided by national governments or the international community. The difference between resilience and disrepair, as Daniel P. Aldrich shows, lies in the depth of communities' social capital. Building Resilience highlights the critical role of social capital in the ability of a community to withstand disaster and rebuild both the infrastructure and the ties that are at the foundation of any community. Aldrich examines the post-disaster responses of four distinct communities—Tokyo following the 1923 earthquake, Kobe after the 1995 earthquake, Tamil Nadu after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, and New Orleans post-Katrina—and finds that those with robust social networks were better able to coordinate recovery. In addition to quickly disseminating information and financial and physical assistance, communities with an abundance of social capital were able to minimize the migration of people and valuable resources out of the area. With governments increasingly overstretched and natural disasters likely to increase in frequency and intensity, a thorough understanding of what contributes to efficient reconstruction is more important than ever. Building Resilience underscores a critical component of an effective response.

Aldrich is an associate professor of political science at Purdue University who is on leave as a Fulbright research fellow at the University of Tokyo's Economics Department for the academic year 2012-2013 and who was an American Association for the Advancement of Science fellow at USAID during the 2011-2012 academic year. He has been a Visiting Scholar at the University of Tokyo's Law Faculty in Japan, an Advanced Research Fellow at Harvard University's Program on US-Japan Relations, a Visiting Researcher at Centre Américain, Sciences Po in Paris, France and a Visiting Professor at the Tata Institute for Disaster Management in Mumbai, India. He is a board member of the journals Asian Politics and Policy and Risk Hazards and Crisis in Public Policy and a Mansfield U.S. Japan Network for the Future Alumnus. He is the section organizer for the American Political Science Association's Disasters and Crises Related Group. His research interests include post-disaster recovery, the siting of controversial facilities, the interaction between civil society and the state, and the socialization of women and men through experience. His work has been discussed in New York Times, CNN , the State Department's Media Hub, the National Bureau of Asian Research, WBEZ's WorldView, National Public Radio, The New Republic, MSNBC's Last Word, National Public Radio, NPR Radio programs, the New York Times (and again in the NYT) , The Oriental Economist, Bloomberg News, Voice of America, The Kudlow Report, Security Management, Reuters, Nikkei Business, ESPN, the Monkey Cage, WSBT News Radio, Marginal Revolution, German newspapers, Italian blogs, French NGO blogs, Slate, The Daily Beast, Reflexiones Finales, Her Campus, Sara Schonhardt's blog, Philippine Daily Inquirer, and numerous regional media outlets. On May 2011 the Purdue Exponent named him among the "Top 5 Professors who have influenced international and national events." In July 2012 his New York Times Op-Ed on disaster recovery was named as one of the five best columns in the Atlantic Wire. http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~daldrich/ http://works.bepress.com/daniel_aldrich/ https://twitter.com/DanielPAldrich
