In September 2000, heavy rainfall in the Tokai district flooded Nagoya and its surroundings, wreaking heavy damage. This flood showed typical aspects of urban flood disaster. The damage expanded in a wide range and paralyzed city operations. This revealed the many problems of complex flood control systems in urbanized drainage basins and evacuation and rescue systems. The cases of the Shinkawa and Tenpaku Rivers are discussed below as typical urban flood problems.
