From June, 2019, the town announces evacuation advisories and alerts using five alert levels so that residents can clearly understand what actions they should take, when a disaster such as a flood damage or a landslide occurs due to a heavy rain or a typhoon.

  • Regarding “Kinkyu Anzen Kakuho (Ensuring emergency safety)”, due to the fact that it is sometimes difficult for the town to obtain reliable information on disasters, “Alert Level 5” is not always issued.
  • “Hinan Shiji (Evacuation Order)” is issued at the same timing as previous “Hinan Kankoku (Evacuation Advisory).” 
  • As for “Koreisha Hinan (Evacuation of the elderly, etc.)” which is “Alert Level 3,” it is the time for people other than the elderly and so on to begin to adjust their usual activities, prepare for evacuation, or voluntarily evacuate if they feel they are in danger.
  • The alert level 1 and 2 are announced by Japan Meteorological Agency, and  the alert level from 3 to 5 are announced by the town with the disaster prevention administrative radio. 
  • In the meantime, the alert level may not be announced in turn from 1 to 5. Even though the alert has not been announced by the town, please take appropriate actions for evacuation in reference to weather forecasts.

For the unexpected, please check evacuation places and evacuation routes with Oizumi-machi Comprehensive Disaster-Preparedness Map or Oizumi Town Disaster Prevention Manual for evacuating safely.
