Japan's evacuation scale for heavy rain, floods and landslides

At Level One, people are advised to stay on the alert for weather updates, while at Level Two they should check how to evacuate. Warnings will be issued at Level Three, which calls for the start of evacuations for the elderly and those with physical disabilities.

Level Four is an "evacuation order," when people face a high risk of mudslides or floods from heavy rain. Everyone in high-risk places must quickly evacuate. Level Five alerts people of the need to "secure safety immediately." This is to be issued when a disaster has already happened or is imminent.

Evacuation
