○企画趣旨
平成30年は、夏は異常な暑さに加えて、大阪北部地震、西日本豪雨、台風21号、北海道胆振中部地震、台風24号と休む間もなく災害が続発している。その中でも前線と台風第7号の影響により6月28日から7月4日にかけて西日本を中心に広い範囲で記録的な大雨となった。総雨量は、四国地方で1800ミリ、東海地方で1200ミリを超え、中国地方、近畿地方などの多くの地点で48時間雨量、72時間雨量などが観測史上1位となった。大雨の特別警報が1府10県に発表され、最近わが国が経験したあらゆる種類の災害が広域にわたって発生した。8月21日付の非常災害対策本部のまとめでは、死者221名、行方不明者9名、重傷者68名、軽傷者319棟、負傷程度不明3名、全壊6,206棟、半壊9,764棟、一部破壊3,765棟、床上浸水9,006棟、床下浸水20,086棟の被害が発生した。
110市町村に災害救助法が適用され「西日本豪雨」と名付けられたこの広域災害について、JDRでは平成31年7月の刊行を目指して西日本豪雨特集号を編集することとした。ハザードおよび被害特性、避難のあり方、災害対応の特徴についての実証的な研究成果はもちろんのこと、今後来るべき南海トラフ地震を乗り切るために必要とされる広域連携について各界で実施されたベストプラクティスの紹介や、広域連携の実現を阻む問題点の指摘や必要となる対策等に関する論考の投稿を期待したい。

○The Aim of the Special Issue
The summer of 2018 brought Japan not only extraordinary heat but also one natural disaster after another, including the Northern Osaka Prefecture Earthquake, the Western Japan Heavy Rain, Typhoon 1821 (Jebi), the Hokkaido Eastern Iburi Earthquake, and Typhoon 1824 (Trami). During the period from June 28 to July 4, a wide area of western Japan experienced record-breaking torrential rains influenced by Typhoon 1807 (Prapiroon) and the seasonal rain front. The total amount of rainfall exceeded 1,800 mm in the Shikoku region and 1,200 mm in the Tokai region. The heaviest rainfalls in recorded history for a 48-hour and a 72-hour period were observed at many points in the Chugoku and Kinki regions as well as in other areas. Special heavy rain warnings were issued in 11 prefectures, and every kind of disaster our country has experienced in recent years occurred over a wide area. As of August 21, the official statistics of the Headquarters for Major Disaster Countermeasures listed the following total damage figures. Regarding human life, there were 221 dead, 9 missing, 68 seriously injured, 319 slightly injured, and three persons injured to an unknown degree. Regarding housing, 6,206 houses were completely destroyed, 9,764 were half destroyed, 3,765 were partially destroyed, 9,006 were inundated above floor level, and 20,086 were inundated below floor level.
The Disaster Relief Act applied in 110 municipalities and this wide-area disaster was officially named the “Western Japan Heavy Rain.” In response, the JDR will compile a special issue on the Western Japan Heavy Rain for publication in July, 2019. We look forward to your submission of papers on scientific descriptions and analyses related to the characteristics of hazards and damage, methods of evacuation, and features of disaster response. We also welcome your submission on not only best practices of regional cooperation in various fields, but also challenges preventing regional cooperation, and necessary measures as a model case of wide area coordination and cooperation necessary to overcome the coming Nankai Trough Earthquake Disasters.
○Scope of Papers
The areas of study are left unspecified. We call for research papers, survey reports, analyses, and proposals based on scientific or socio-scientific methods on a wide range of topics related to the 2018 Western Japan Heavy Rain Disaster. The following are example areas of study.
