It is important to prepare early for typhoon countermeasures.

 

For small vessels such as pleasure boats and fishing boats, paying attention to the latest meteorological and oceanographic information, we will strengthen the mooring of vessels with a margin in front of stormy weather, land and store them in safe places, etc. Let's prevent accidents such as outflow, flooding and sinking.

 

Just in case, wear a life jacket when performing these tasks.
Sudden big waves can occur along the coast. Keep away from the coastal areas unnecessarily.


1. Evacuate to sea areas that are less affected by typhoons with plenty of time
2. Selection of an appropriate anchoring place and anchoring method that does not easily cause anchoring
3. Monitoring of anchorage status of own ship by radar etc.
4. Always listen to International VHF (CH16)
5. Confirmation of constant operation of AIS on ships equipped with AIS

According to weather information, Typhoon No. 14 is currently in the south of Japan and is expected to approach the coast of Aichi and Mie prefectures from October 10th (Sat) to 11th (Sun).

 

Even if it is sunny, high waves are expected to come along the Pacific coast due to the effects of typhoons. In the past, even if typhoons were far away, they became large swells and reached the coast, causing capsizing due to high waves, falling into the sea, and drifting accidents.

 

Always get the latest meteorological and oceanographic information and prioritize safety.

In order to prevent marine accidents such as flooding of moored vessels due to the effects of storm surges and storm surges, take safety measures as soon as possible before the rain or wind becomes strong, such as landing or reinforcing mooring lines and evacuating to safe places.

 

In addition, when a recommendation based on the Port Regulations Law is issued to each port due to the approach of a typhoon, we will notify you with emergency information etc. and check the "List of announcement status of recommendations etc.".
