Various phenomena such as inundation, slope failure and debris flow are occurred compositely by a localized torrential downpour. Since the situation differs in each area's factors and how disaster prevention facilities are maintained, each area needs individual warning and evacuation standard and system.
Detail survey with the inhabitants soon after every disaster is useful for preparing the individual standard and system. The followings are proposals based on the survey data.
Everyone watching System -E.W.S- : areas linked system against each local disaster.
Disaster Integrated Watching Rainfall -D.I.W.R- : precipitation for judging the phenomena under the localized torrential downpour whether it is dangerous or not.
Country Watching Map -C.W.M- : map to know the local disaster, which include D. I. W. R and necessary information for evacuation.
I hope these proposals are well applied and work effectively.
