Achieving “Zero Failed Emergency Escapes”: All Must Evacuate from Dangerous Locations at Warning Level 4!!

Updated:2021年5月10日更新 print

In this Weather Warning System (in Japan), “evacuation information” on water- and sediment-related disasters issued by cities, towns and villages and “disaster prevention weather information” about such disasters issued by prefectures and the national government are combined and categorized into 5 Warning Levels. The system has been created to enable all individuals in Japan to make their own decisions on evacuation in case of natural disasters.

If and when a Level 3 Warning or Level 4 Warning is issued by a city, town or village that you live in, please make sure that you evacuate quickly.
