Ibaraki quake: What conclusions?

December 28, 2016

Researcher: analysis of quake in Ibaraki



An earthquake researcher says the northern part of Ibaraki Prefecture, and Fukushima Prefecture, which is located north of Ibaraki, became a seismically active region after the massive earthquake 5 years ago.

Naoshi Hirata at the University of Tokyo's Earthquake Research Institute says old wooden houses and other fragile structures may not withstand tremors with an intensity of 6-minus on the Japanese seismic scale of zero to 7.

He added that people in quake-hit areas should stay away from potentially hazardous sites as aftershocks with intensities up to 6-minus could occur.
