5-10 November, 2010 (West Sumatra, Indonesia)

The earthquake that struck off the Mnetawai Islands in the night of 25 October triggered a tsunami and left more than five hundred people killed or missing on North and South Pagai Islands.

Mr. Atsushi KORESAWA of ADRC participated in the Indonesia and Japan joint survey team organized by the "JICA-JST Indonesia Multi-disciplinary Hazard Reduction from Earthquakes and Volcanoes in Indonesia" project. In conducting a field survey, particular focus was put on such areas as disaster preparedness (awareness, education, training), emergency response (search and rescue, emergency supply, shelter) and early recovery (house and household recovery) as summarized in the attached presentation material: Mentawai Islands Tsunami Survey.pdf.
