GUIDE TO EMERGENCY REPORTING


To foreign residents & visitors in Japan.

Under the Broadcast Act, NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) is under the obligation to broadcast early warning emergency reporting(= breaking news) in times of natural disasters as earthquake/tsunami.

Their national network of seismometers in cooperation with the Japan Meteorological Agency & skip-back cameras makes NHK capable of delivering the news immediately after powerful earthquake/tsunami.
