First, to prepare for a tsunami that may occur frequently (once every several decades to once every hundred years or so), we launched a project to construct a coastal embankment of about 9km in length and a height of T.P.+7.2 m, jointly with the national government and the Miyagi Prefectural government. The embankment was completed in March 2017. The embankment is designed so that, in the event of a tsunami that exceeds our expectations, the breakdown or collapse time of the embankment can be extended or the possibility of its total collapse
can be reduced.
