This book will be a useful reference for academicians, researchers, practicing professionals and, especially, students of the geotechnical fraternity.
Record-breaking localized and torrential rainfall on July 5, 2017, caused many land-slides, debris flows, and flooding of rivers in several areas of
the Fukuoka and Oitaprefectures of Kyushu, Japan.
The disaster, officially known as “The 2017 JulyNorthern Kyushu Torrential Rainfall Disaster”, is one of the unprecedented indisaster histories of Japan in many decades.
The record-breaking magnitude of theheavy and localized rains triggered landslides and debris flow that swept massivevolumes of driftwood and soils into cities
towns, and villages located at the basesof mountains, leaving 34 dead including 4 still missing.
It also resulted in 1,428 completely, half and partially destroyed houses. The large amount of driftwood
thatgot caught on bridges and other structures blocked the flow of the rivers, therebyspreading the damage even further.
According to data analysis by the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), inAsakura city, Fukuoka prefecture recorded some 1,000 mm of rain in the 24-h periodending on midnight of July 5, 2017.
The city of Hita, Oita Prefecture and Toho villageof Fukuoka Prefecture each had some 600 mm of rain; and the city of Nakatsu, OitaPrefecture,
and Soeda town of Fukuoka Prefecture each had around 500 mm of rain,according to an analysis by the JMA’s Fukuoka Regional Headquarters.
In the figure, blue areas represent the flooded rivers and their tributaries, and thered areas represent the extent of damage due to landslides, debris flows, and flood-related damage.
