Tsunami Evacuation Measures

To help ensure the safety of city residents and others in the event of a large scale tsunami caused by a catastrophic earthquake on the Nankai Trough, Sakai City Government is developing new tsunami evacuation procedures, taking into account lessons learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake.

Tips for Evacuation

(1) Please evacuate toward the east heading for the JR Hanwa Line

(2) If you are unable to escape or have difficulty going further, please evacuate to higher places, such as tsunami evacuation buildings.

(3) Please keep away from rivers and evacuate to places of higher altitude.

2. Things to remember when you evacuate

(1) It is assumed that the first wave of a tsunami will reach Sakai City about 100 minutes after an earthquake, so please remain calm and do not rush when you evacuate.
