# Estimating Tsunami Economic Losses of Okinawa Island with Multi-Regional-Input-Output Modeling

^{1}

^{2}

^{*}

## Abstract

**:**

^{2}. Inundation ranging from 2.0 to 5.0 m in depth covers the largest area of approximately 10 km

^{2}and is followed by areas with inundation depths of 1.0–2.0 m and >5.0 m. Our findings show that direct losses will occur, while indirect losses are only approximately 56% that of direct losses. This approach could be applied to other areas and tsunami scenarios, which will aid disaster management and adaptation policies.
