New plan aims to halve Tokyo quake deaths, damage
from The Japan Times
The government said the estimated death toll from a predicted major earthquake directly beneath the Tokyo metropolitan area could be halved from 23,000 if authorities adopt a new 10-year risk management plan. Officials said they also aim to reduce by 50 percent the 610,000 buildings that could be destroyed. Adopted by the Cabinet, the revised basic program updates mitigation strategies from an original March 2014 plan.
