About emergency earthquake alerts
The Meteorological Agency’s Earthquake Early Warning is an warning alert sent out before a strong earthquake tremor arrives. By predicting the scale of an earthquake and how strong it will be in various locations through the sensing of the early small tremors near the hypocenter and then announcing large tremors several to several dozen seconds before they occur, it is expected to be useful in disaster prevention and reduction. In order to utilize the emergency earthquake alerts, it is necessary to sufficiently understand their characteristics. It is necessary to always be aware of such things as the fact that the emergency earthquake alert might sometimes not come soon enough, and what actions to take when an alert does come.
