News Letter Vol.30 is Now Available -Support for Areas Affected by July 2023 Heavy Rains
On July 10, 2023, a Heavy Rain Emergency Warning was issued in the Northern Kyushu region including Fukuoka and Oita prefectures, and landslide and flooding damaged many areas. Some areas were hit by “once-in-several-decades heavy rain,” and Hokuriku, Tohoku and other regions also later sustained extensive damages.
On July 10, Civic Force Saga Office began gathering information about the damages through communications with municipalities and our local partner organizations. The same morning, an advance team of the Airborne Rescue & Relief Operations With Search (ARROWS), our joint search-and-rescue team, departed from its base in Hiroshima Prefecture for Kurume City, Fukuoka Prefecture. Civic Force and ARROWS are collaborating to confirm the needs of hospitals and evacuation centers and deliver supplies to various locations.
In this newsletter, we report on the damages caused by the July 2023 Heavy Rains and our support activities for the Oku-Noto Earthquake that occurred in Ishikawa Prefecture in May. We also report on our supply transportation training with Amazon.
