[MIS34-P81] Real-time Damage Estimations for the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquakes by J-RISQ
Keywords:Kumamoto earthquake, J-RISQ, real-time damage estimation
J-RISQ issued the first report 29 seconds after the M6.5 event occurred and a total of seven reports for about 10 minutes. The first report using data from 5 stations showed that population exposed to seismic intensity 6 lower or larger was 7,800. Finally the system estimated that population exposed to seismic intensity of 6 lower or larger was 620,000 and that of 6 higher or larger was 290,000 by using 1091 strong motion data. The estimated results of building damage showed that completely destroyed buildings were between 6,000 and 14,000 and partly destroyed were between 7,000 and 33,000. The distribution of estimated completely destroyed buildings spread 7 km long by 1 km wide in Mashiki town.
For the M7.3 event occurred about 28 hours after the M6.5 event, the system distributed the first report 29 seconds after the M7.3 event occurred and a total of eight reports for about 11 minutes. Finally the system estimated that population exposed to seismic intensity of 6 lower or larger was 1,130,000 and that of 6 higher or larger was 670,000 by using 2391 strong motion data. The estimated results of building damage showed that completely destroyed buildings were between 16,000 and 38,000 and partly destroyed were between 18,000 and 88,000. The distribution of estimated completely destroyed buildings spread in Mashiki town similar to the result of the M6.5 event and Kumamoto city. However, this result of damage building is out of consideration of the effect of the earthquakes including M6.5 event before M7.3 event. At this time, we are not able to compare these results with real damage because the whole picture of real damage has not been grasped yet. A detailed analysis of real damage is to be desired.

The seismic intensity data from local governments and JMA that were used in the real-time system were provided by JMA.
