Estimated damage, fatalities due to earthquake in W Japan

Time: nowish
Location: Japan (southern coast, Nankai)
Googled: terms in subject line (simulation, computer simulation, earthquake, prediction, Japan, Nankai, Osaka, etc.), as well as 南海地震・シミュレーション等
Question: Apparently the three big periodic earthquakes on the south-western coast (W. Kyushu - Nankai - Nagoya area) have historically all gone off at once. I want to find out what an estimate for damage and fatalities would be if they hit during a workday, assuming a tsunami also arose. (I feel a bit like Godzilla, here, actually *stomps* ) I've seen the computer simulations of a tsunami hitting downtown Osaka on TV (I live in Japan and on slow news days they like to scare us) but I'd love to have some actual statistics.... Japanese sites are fine!
---> I have bad, bad, bad characters who, ah, set the earthquakes off, and maximum destruction would be preferred * stomps again *
