North Korea is increasing the firing of missiles
On 29th also there was a firing.
Since this year began, 21 times; more than ever before.
If a missile is fired, the country is thinking about the importance of having a place for the people living in Japan to evacuate to.
It is said that in the administrative divisions of Japan, locations that are sturdy, like concrete buildings and underground shopping facilities which has space to give about 0.825m2 per person will be soon decided to be converted to evacuation sites.
In Tokyo metropolitan, after discussions with the City and town neighbourhoods, it was decided that over 3700 public facilities like schools and libraries will be made into evacuation locations.
With this, it is thought that the 14 million people living in Tokyo metropolitan can evacuate in a short time
Also, there are areas with a large population but less number of public facility locations.
From now on, Tokyo metropolitan is thinking of making office buildings and institutions available underground to evacuation locations.
