The signboard of the miracle returns to Kuma village It is washed away by the heavy rain, and it crosses the sea, and it is discovered in Tsushima November 2, 19:07.
In the middle of last month, a fire brigade sign found on the shore of Tsushima City, Nagasaki Prefecture, about 300 kilometers away, was returned to the village fire brigade after being washed away from Kuma Village in Kumamoto Prefecture due to heavy rains in July.
This signboard is a wooden signboard about 150 cm long and 40 cm wide, written “Kuma Village Fire Brigade 4th Section Tsumesho”, and it was washed away with the building of the filling place by the flood of the Kuma River.
After that, it was discovered a little more than three months later on the coast of Tsushima City, Nagasaki Prefecture, about 300 kilometers away from the sea, so it is said to be a signboard of miracles from locals.
On the 2nd, the head of the Tsushima City Fire Brigade visited Kuma Village Office and handed the signboards to the fire brigade members in Kuma Village.
In some places, the signboard is damaged, such as the paint is over, but the characters can be distinguished, and the fire brigade in Kuma Village will save it as conveying the lessons of the disaster.
In addition, the fire brigade in Tsushima City also gives a board of cypress from Tsushima, which is about the same size as the washed-out signboard, and is used as a signboard when the filling station is newly established.
Mr. Yasuda, of the Tsushima City Fire Brigade, said, “I thought what was discovered in Tsushima was a miracle, and I wanted to deliver it with my own hands. I would like to take this opportunity to deepen exchanges between the fire brigades.”
Kuma Village Fire Brigade Chief Mitsuo Matsuno said, “I didn’t expect it to be found in Tsushima, but I’m glad I came back. I want to do my best for reconstruction.”
