Relief and Recovery: Typhoon Hagibis in Japan


The impact of Super Typhoon Hagibis-the strongest storm to hit Japan in decades-continues to be seen and felt from the central to northeast parts of the island nation. More than 83,000 homes have been affected by flooding and families continue to be displaced from their homes, with 3,549 individuals residing in 123 evacuation sites as of October 31. International Medical Corps is working with local partners to help reach the women, men and children most in need.

Striking Japan's Pacific coast on October 12, Super Typhoon Hagibis is the strongest storm to hit Japan in decades. Hagibis hit from Shizuoka prefecture up to Iwate prefecture, bringing historic rainfall and flooding. Nagano, Kanagawa, Tokyo, Saitama, Chiba, Tochigi, Ibaragi, Fukushima and Miyagi are among the hardest-hit. Tens of thousands of homes have been affected by flooding and thousands have been displaced from their homes.


International Medical Corps is working with local partners to provide relief and recovery for the typhoon-affected women, men, and children. Together, our teams are focusing on providing relief supplies such as hygiene items, and materials and appliances to help keep people warm as temperatures begin to drop. We are focusing on supporting the well-being for vulnerable populations such as children, seniors and those with disabilities.

Long-Term Impact

International Medical Corps' approach to help people help themselves is critical to ensure a long-term impact in the communities we serve. International Medical Corps will work with local partners to support recovery efforts to build back better and help the survivors of the typhoon. International Medical Corps will coordinate closely with governmental agencies and other partners to ensure sustainability.
