After the earthquake, don’t wait for an official warning, head immediately ON FOOT out of the tsunami inundation zone. (It is estimated you’ll have 20 minutes to reach higher ground.) 2 Where to go? Locate which zone you’re in on the map, and follow that evacuation route to the designated assembly area. (Note: some of the bridges highlighted on the map may be difficult to cross after an earthquake, but these are the recommended routes at this time.) 3 Stay in the assembly area Remain in the assembly area until you’re instructed otherwise.
