Earthquakes and tsunami are not the only potential hazards in Japan, as tropical cyclones (typhoons) and other natural phenomena can also cause tremendous damage and loss of life. It's therefore important to heed weather forecasts and pay attention to warnings and advisories, and also to be on the alert for Evacuation Information (hinan jōhō / 避難情報).
If the situation in your location threatens to become dangerous, Evacuation Information will be issued by individual municipalities. When Evacuation Information is issued by the City of Nagoya, Nagoya International Center will publish the same information in Easy Japanese, English, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Filipino, Vietnamese, and Nepali on the NIC website, and on Facebook.
To view Evacuation Information on the NIC website, check the Evacuation Information window under the sliding images on the top page. The message, "No current evacuation information" with a green box will be displayed during normal conditions. When Evacuation Information has been issued, this window will be red, and buttons will allow users to view all current Evacuation Information in the above languages, and also to view the evacuation guide and maps.
You can also bookmark https://www.nic-nagoya.or.jp/evacuation/ and go straight to the multilingual Evacuation Information page at any time, even when no Evacuation Information has been issued.
