Q: during japan tsunami..how could the damages be minimized?
A: The damage during the 2011 tsunami in Japan could have been minimized by artificial structures intended to block wind and waves, such as a seawall. However, the true effectiveness of this method is debatable. [ Tsunami damages can be minimized by proper information systems, proper media coverage, detection of tsunami warnings in advance, proper evacuating system, taking safety measures. Lastly
the following preventive measures can also be adopted to minimize the damage of possible tsunami; 1. Dense mangrove habitats reduce the force of waves and reduce the pressure. 2. Coral reefs may be artificially constructed: these have been shown to reduce the impact of tsunamis. 3. Better education of residents about evacuation procedures. In conjunction with this, early warning systems need to be devised. 4. Building settlements further inland and away from the lowest-lying regions also reduce the impact on people" if people do not live there. impact is minimised. This, however, is rarely economically viable. ]
