2 meter tsunami waves hit Japan after Chile quake

Posted by Junichi Kawagoe on 06.2010 News Out of English Newspaper   0 comments   0 trackback
Experts say the tsunami waves that struck some Japanese cities following the earthquake that hit Chile last Saturday were much higher than those recorded at observatories.

Japanese researchers from the Meteorological Agency and Akita University have announced the findings of their field studies on the heights of tsunami waves. They estimated heights based on traces left on buildings. Though waves of about one meter had been recorded at tidal stations on the Pacific Coast, they estimated that tsunami waves of 1.9 meters and 1.8 meters hit coastal cities in Iwate and Miyagi prefectures in northern Japan.

University researchers estimated tsunami heights at about 2.2 meters in Iwate, about 1.8 meters in Kochi prefecture, western Japan, and at about 90 centimeters in Okinawa prefecture, southern Japan.

The figures are two to three times bigger than those recorded at the observatories.

The Meteorological Agency warns people who evacuate their homes to stay at shelters even if the first wave is minor as waves can become bigger due to local terrain.
