When you think it is time to evacuate your home, don't wait for the city's announcement and just leave.
Carry something that tells your name, address and contacts. We recommend you to have such cards ready for children and elderlies beforehand. Make sure that they carry these items with them.
Avoid using cars when you move to shelters.
Cars stop working when water level is higher than 30 centimeters.
Take minimum things with you. Use a backpack so that your hands are free.
Leave a message at home to absent family members where you are going.
Avoid being alone and help each other with neighbors. Take the safe evacuation route to the planned shelters.
Avoid the river banks, low spots and underground passes, and try using wide and safe roads.
Once you reached at a shelter, follow the instructions of the people in charge. Report your name and address.
