Q: Why not an evacuation shelter?

Major reasons to recommend home evacuation (vertical evacuation to the 2nd floor of your house or higher)

Considering the land form of Soka City

  • The flood will not come as high as the 2nd floor or higher in most of the areas.
  • The landslide disaster will not occur.
  • The flood will not wash away houses.

Other reasons

  • You will have little stress in a familiar place.
  • You lose no time to reach a place of evacuation and have little danger.
  • You can avoid the risk of infection in a group life.

If you cannot evacuate to the 2nd floor or higher, or may think about evacuating to the house of a relative or a friend or to an evacuation shelter, it is very dangerous to walk to somewhere on a flooded road. Take actions in good time.

Vertical evacuation: 3 m or higher
