When you feel a strong earthquake or a weak earthquake that continues for a long time, or when you see or hear a Major Tsunami Warning or Tsunami Warning even if you do not feel an earthquake...
There is no way of knowing when a major earthquake will strike.
It is important to think every day about what you will do in case of an earthquake.
A tsunami approaches at high speed.
When a tsunami occurs, everyone should evacuate immediately and as quickly as possible without taking anything.
A tsunami occurs when an undersea earthquake causes the sea floor to rise or fall, or causes a landslide on the sea floor. This displaces the surrounding seawater upwards or downwards, producing a tsunami. When the sea floor movement (up-down movement) is particularly large, it can produce a large tsunami that is extremely destructive when it reaches the shore.
