WHAT TO DO IF THERE IS TSUNAMI ALERT NUMBER 2

When their is TSUNAMI ADVISORY NO. 2
If the PHIVOLCS had raised the Tsunami Alert Status to Tsunami Lavel 2.  This means that the threat of tsunami occurrence has escalated.
The following are hereby ordered for disaster avoidance:
1. People are advised to stay away from the shoreline and beaches.
2. Families whose houses are near the coastal areas are now ordered to evacuate to safer ground – ground elevation of four (4) meters above sea level.
3. Evacuation in the target barangays in the nine coastal areas (two cities and seven towns) that are within the barangay are also encouraged to commence even before Alert 3.
4. No sailing out to sea – all sea crafts shall not venture into the sea.  They should rather proceed to deeper sea for their safety.
5. Evacuation should be by FOOT.  Do not bring your vehicles during evacuation as these may cause traffic jams and may complicate the evacuation movement.  Bring food stuff during evacuation.
6. The AFP/PNP shall establish check points in road network leading to the coastal area of the eastern seaboard to prevent the people from going back to the coastal area.
7. Maintain close monitoring the situation from your favorite radio station for PHIVOLCS and PDRRMC updates and advisories.
