Window glass, outer walls, and signboards may fall from high- and middle-rise buildings downtown or in business districts.

œIf window glass in an office building breaks and falls, it will disperse fast (at a speed of 40 ~ 60 km). Tiles on the outer walls of buildings or signboards attached to outer walls may also fall. Protect your head with your shoes or the like and move as far away from the buildings as possible.

œThe danger of falling signboards and neon signs is greater in downtown areas than in business districts. Be especially alert if there are strong tremors.
