Day_151 : Disaster Information 5

I had a query on historical earthquake information in Japan. Therefore, I update the new useful disaster information especially historical data in Japan.

The following is the archive of disasters (can select disaster type, year, and area) all over Japan but only in Japanese.
The archive was created to collect all local government data in Japan.
The best book to know the historical earthquake disaster record is the following book. This is also only in Japanese.

 

The followings are the same as the disaster information 4.

Flood list: an excellent source of flood disasters
floodlist.com/tag/thailand
AHA center- adinet: disasters in ASEAN countries can be browsed and also checked in detail.

DRH-Asia: cases on local knowledge and their applications related to the technologies in Asian countries can be found.

4. GDACS

Concerning, data on demographic, socioeconomic, and others, we should
clarify the levels from national to local.

County Level
1. UN data

undata

2. World Bank open data

world bank data

3. CIA world factbook

world fact book

Provincial (States) Level
1. Government Office (National Statistics Office,etc.)

Community Level
1. Local Government Office
When we investigate the disasters, we first go to the ADRC (if the country is Asia) and Relief Web to see some significant numbers such as the death toll and affected numbers. Then, check the disaster history of the target areas by EM-DAT and Desinventar (if the country is listed). We also overview the county’s background by CIA world fact book and check some socio-economic data by UN or World bank open data. In addition, the local government or community data of the target area are significant to be accessed. These are the primary action to grasp the whole picture of the disaster.
