The app translates and distributes disaster information sent by the local governments. Depending on the local governments' transmission situation, and the users' connection and location information, the information may not always be delivered in real time. As the translation is automated, it cannot be said that there will be no mistranslations. The information sent is meant to be distributed so it can be helpful, even just a little during times of disasters, so please confirm the correct information by calling JNTO, checking the information sent by the country of Japan, or inquiring at the embassies.
