【Be Prepared for Typhoons】
[ Safety measures before a typhoon comes: ]
●Check your house and surrounding area and bring in anything which might get blown away.
●Make sure your drains are kept clear.
●Prepare your emergency bag (water, emergency rations and clothes etc.), infection prevention materials (masks, thermometer and wet tissues etc.) and make preparations for evacuation immediately.
●Confirm where and how to get to safe locations such as a relative`s house or a friend`s house in order to quickly evacuate there.
●Sign up to the Disaster Prevention Information Email Service to get the latest information on typhoons.

[ When a typhoon is approaching: ]
●Check weather information through data broadcasts from the NHK.
●Try to get the latest weather information on wind, rain and tides and be ready to take shelter quickly.
●Check information about disaster prevention within the city through emails with information about disaster prevention and emergency information or through the government radio system for disaster prevention and relief.
●Remain alert even after the typhoon has passed, as strong winds can return in the following one or two hours.
[ In case of an emergency: ]
●Move immediately to the evacuation point with your family and neighbors.
●Early evacuation is particularly recommended for those who cannot move quickly.
●Take as few personal items as you can in order to keep your hands free.
●When storms or rain are too severe to leave home, remain in a safe place in your house, such as upstairs, and, if your house is near a hillside, on the opposite side of the house from that.
