Recently, tornado disasters have often occurred in Japan; e.g. Saga City (F2) in 2004, Nobeoka City (F2) in Miyazaki and Saroma Town (F3) in Hokkaido, 2006. However, the countermeasures against tornado disasters have not established yet. Therefore, the authors conducted questionnaire surveys twice, which were answered by the residents in Saroma Town, in order to collect information useful for constructing the preparedness manuals against tornado disasters for governments and residents from the viewpoints of prevention, preparation, emergency management and restoration. The results of the first survey show the characteristics of the disaster, i.e. damage to buildings and harm to humans, as well as the actions of the governments and residents during and after the tornado. The second survey focuses on the restoration of the stricken area, both physically and psychologically.
