Weather of Arabia - The events of Japan recently occupied local and global sites as a result of being exposed to a strong earthquake, and then Typhoon Nanmadol struck the southern parts of it before turning into a tropical storm. The tropical system caused huge amounts of rain and floods in many areas due to heavy rain, in addition to strong winds And the occurrence of strong tidal waves, but what makes Japan vulnerable to all this .. Arabia weather answers

 

First, what are the causes of earthquakes in Japan?

 

The answer lies in the geographical location of Japan, as this island country is located along the region called the “Ring of Fire ”; It is an imaginary horseshoe-like region that follows the edge of the Indian Ocean, where most earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur, and according to the US Geological Survey, 81% of the world's largest earthquakes occur in this active belt.

 

Many tectonic plates collide in the Ring of Fire, in the so-called “subduction” region, where one layer bends and slides under the other, causing the oceanic crust to sink into the Earth’s mantle.

 

Second, why do typhoons occur in Japan?

 

Japan is a country located in East Asia, bordering the Pacific Ocean from the north, the Sea of Japan from the west, and the China Sea from the south, and it is located within the equator. In intensity from year to year .. As Japan is located along the western edge of the typhoon corridor, in particular, "Okinawa" is located in the middle of the road and is exposed annually to an average of seven storms of this type.

Typhoon season in Japan usually runs from July to October, but August and September are known to be the hottest months. Strong typhoons are active in it, and typhoons usually start in the southwestern part of the Pacific Ocean east of the Philippines, where typhoons make their way through the “hurricane corridor”, (an oceanic route that sends cyclones towards the Asian continent, but once the typhoon settles over the ocean, it often dissipates without Harm)

 

Japan often suffers from serious natural disasters such as typhoons, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes. Although these disasters can claim many lives, as happened in the Great Hanshin-Awaji earthquake in January 1995 AD and Niigata Chuicho earthquake in October 2004 AD - the Japanese have been working hard for several years to reduce their devastating effects. Japan uses the latest technology to design earthquake-resistant buildings and precisely track storm tracks.
