Yeah MBC Broadcasting has been live streaming news on their YT channel, I haven't seen that before.  It's weather coverage and the occasional statement by I think prefectural officials.

After last year where people were asked to evacute but most didnt take advice. And many deaths arose. I guess agencies are trying to be louder that before.

Actualy proportion of the population who "evacuated" (i.e. took refuge in a designated place of refuge): ca. 0.4%.

 

Doesn't look like a major disaster at this point.
