ABSTRACT

The increasing pattern of property damage of heavy snowfall disasters has been observed due to the frequent occurrence of natural disasters by recent climate change phenomena. Heavy snowfall disasters could result in facility collapse, agricultural and livestock losses, and traffic congestion, which emphasizes the importance of the efficient response to the disaster. As for statistical analysis, the variable of property damage from snowfalls was regressed on snowfall amount, temperature and rural area ratio during the period of 2005 to 2015. The results show that the size of property damage from heavy snowfall disasters increased with higher amount of snowfalls, lower temperature, and higher rural area ratio. The research findings are expected to provide the policy guidelines to the local governments which are vulnerable to heavy snowfall disasters during the winter season.
