On 17 January , a big earthquake, registering magnitude on the Richter scale hit the western part of Japan, claiming 6, lives, injuring at least 34 people, and destroying properties and infrastructures, causing an estimated damage of between 95 to billion U.S. by: 6. there was a relatively large younger population in the Hanshin area in However, analyzing the case also has some Hanshin–Awaji Earthquake advantages. One of the most importantis that analyzing the Hanshin–Awaji Earthquake that occurred 17 years agoallowed us to examine the long-term impact of the earthquakes on people’s lives.
