【Important Information】Five-level disaster prevention information which is given out during times of heavy rain(5段階の防災情報について)

There has been a change to the way in which flood and landslide disaster prevention information is communicated.

In addition to evacuation information given out during heavy rain, such as evacuation advisories and disaster occurrence information, a new 5-level alert system has been added which will inform people as to when they should evacuate.

Alert Levels 1 and 2 will be announced by the Japan Meteorological Agency and Alert Levels 3 through 5 will be announced by the City along with other evacuation information. Make sure to take appropriate evacuation measures based on the Alert Level.
