15-2 Typhoons
  Disaster prevention information (e.g. movement of rain cloud, amount of rainfall, rainfall forecast) is available at the city hall. Check the location of your home if it is a "water way" such as near rivers or at the foot of a slope.
Apartment building construction and housing land development sites change the flow of water. Recent sudden weather change brings about massive flow of water into cities and causes urban disasters. Follow up weather information, including rainfall intensity and water level, and prepare against flood and other disaster.
