On The Ball

As we prepare for a major typhoon to hit the city today we want to bring attention to our emergency evacuation notification methods.  The city has a robust Facebook page here:  https://www.facebook.com/RikuzentakataCity/ and we post announcements when there are weather reports that need to be known by residents and visitors.  Today is no exception.

City hall employees have been on the ball since last night (August 29th, 2016).  All morning we have posted notifications in English and Japanese.  With the scale of the typhoon expected to hit the city directly later this evening we see informing people and preparing evacuation shelters as a very high priority.  Being on the ball, prompt, and insisting upon advance preparation is one of the many things we do well.

We take disaster preparedness VERY seriously and hope you will do the same.

In the mean time, we hope and pray for safety of everyone in the region.
