Japan considering evacuation drill for missile launch by North Korea

NTV reported early this morning that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga disclosed on Monday that the GOJ is considering holding an evacuation drill “as soon as possible” based on the scenario that North Korea launches a ballistic missile aimed at Japan. The network said the GOJ will use the J-Alert system to provide emergency information to local municipalities, which will then via loudspeakers relay to residents the message to evacuate. The network said the GOJ judged that there is an increased need for conducting an evacuation drill given that the DPRK launched more than 20 ballistic missiles this year.
