Great Kanto Earthquake 1923 Great Kanto earthquake (Mw = 7.9; Ms = 8.2) Occurred along the Sagami Trough in the Sagami Bay on 1 September 1923 One of the most disastrous earthquakes in Japanese history

Earthquake claimed 99,331 dead, 43,746 missing, and left 3.4 million homeless

Major social consequences - systematic massacre of 6,000 Koreans & political assassinations

Refugees Imperial Palace

Great Kanto Earthquake 1923

Tsunami damage Yuigahama Beach

Tsunami height reached 12 m at Atami in Shizuoka Prefecture and 9.3 m at Aihama on the Boso Peninsula

The tsunami struck Atami, located close to the focal region, about 5 minutes after the earthquake occurred

Hence the tsunami was not triggered directly by the earthquake itself, but a subsequent submarine landslide

There was no large tsunami wave inside Tokyo Bay

Lloyds realistic disaster scenariosUSA Windstorm, Marine Collision in Prince William Sound, North Sea- Loss of Major Complex, Aviation Collision, Satellite Risks, Political Risks, Liability Risks

Compulsory ScenariosSecond Event, Florida Windstorm, California Earthquake, New Madrid Earthquake, European Windstorm, Japanese Earthquake, Terrorism

Objective is for syndicates to estimate losses in a variety of hypothetical disaster scenarios

Wanted me to assess how realistic this scenarios was and the impacts, including a tsunami assessment
