The Tokachi-oki Earthquake, a magnitude 8 big earthquake, occurred on September 26, 2003. At the Hokkaido Refinery of Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd. In Tomakomai, a peak acceleration of the seismic ground motion was recorded at 86 gal (resultant value). This ground motion was predominated by slightly long periods lasting 3 to 8 seconds that harmonized with the natural period of the tanks, causing significant sloshing and subsequent damages of floating roof tanks (FRT).
