Nachi-katsuura town in Wakayama prefecture had a big disaster on September 3, 2011 by typhoon No. 12. Medical staffs in Nachi-katsuura municipal hospital and health nurses in the town started support services at the disaster area immediately after the typhoon. Through the support service activities, we have learned some problems in the disaster area. The poor condition of evacuation centers made some health damage to the sufferers. In addition, the lack of underwear, socks and pants for men became a problem at evacuation centers. © 2013 Jpn. Res. Assn. Text. End-Uses.
