New Initiative for Seismic Retrofitting of Homes in Fukuoka

Following the Noto Peninsula earthquake, Fukuoka Governor Hattori announced the formation of a new council in collaboration with municipalities to promote seismic retrofitting. Despite a high retrofitting rate of 89.6% in the region, around 230,000 homes remain vulnerable. The initiative aims to address these gaps, especially in areas with older housing, to enhance residents’ safety and awareness about earthquake resilience. Source: NHK
