Iwate prefecture begins admitting volunteers; refugee housing supply vs. demand examined – Logistics Update 4/4

ALAN is providing daily updates from Ms. Hikaru Kajita, a CSCMP member in Japan. Additional information and a link to relief needs is available at http://www.ALANaid.org.

“Today, Iwate Social Welfare Council announced that they can accept the volunteer outside the prefecture. Because of food and fuel shortage, Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima prefectures had stopped to accept outside the prefecture volunteer, even they need a lot of workforce. Movement for the revival has been activated.

We still cannot count how many houses were washed out. About the remaining house and building, already judged red (dangerous) are 9,462, and yellow (caution needed) are 17,898. As of today, stricken area prefectures request 62,290 temporary houses, 3,759 are already started to construct, 1,401are scheduled. But the shortage of materials for temporary house, especially wooden material, is pointed out. MLIT already checked that about 17,000 public houses are available all over Japan, and many volunteer home owners answered to offer their vacant houses free of charge. Japan government is speeding up the confirmation of the refugee house supply-demand picture.”
