Former Minister for Internal Affairs Hiroya Masuda and five scholars on politics, economics, engineering, and meteorology discussed how to prepare for and respond to major natural disasters. The torrential rains in western Japan earlier this month claimed more than 220 lives. There are still about 4,400 people in 13 prefectures who are unable to return to their homes, including those staying in temporary shelters such as school gymnasiums, after floods and landslides destroyed or damaged more than 38,000 homes across Japan.
