Abstract

This paper discusses the Kinugawa River basin, where an overflow and overtopping of the embankment along with its eventual collapse occurred, resulting in a large-scale inundation during the Kanto and Tohoku Flood Disaster in September 2015. The spatial-temporal characteristics of rainfall, characteristics of rainfall runoff, and evacuation behavior of the residents are investigated and analyzed.
