AMDA Emergency Relief #1: The Noto Peninsula Earthquake, Japan

Publication date:2024-01-02
AMDA has sent two aid workers to the Noto Peninsula on Japan’s western coast which was devastated by the magnitude 7.6 quake that occurred at around 16:10 on 1 January. 

After loading relief supplies, the team left for Ishikawa, the most affected area, by car at noon on 2 January from AMDA Headquarters in Okayama. 

Besides tsunami and mudslides triggered by the quake, Japan Meteorological Agency has said buildings have been destroyed, and houses have been flooded in certain areas.

“We are yet to ascertain what we can do in an abnormal situation like this, but we will try to do our best,” an AMDA coordinator said.

Upon arrival in Ishikawa, the AMDA team will be assessing the extent of the damage and grasp the needs on the ground for further relief work.
