Japan has conduced multiple mass evacuation drills across the country amid fears that North Korea are about to launch a missile attack any day now.

Japanese citizens in nine prefectures have already held drills in which residents were ordered to evacuate to underground bunkers, with 11 more scheduled to take place in the coming days. reports: This month, the nation’s first drill in which people will evacuate to an underground mall is scheduled to occur in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture.

People who might face such an emergency are required to evacuate in a different way than in the event of an earthquake.

Since the start of this year, North Korea has fired ballistic missiles that left and reentered the atmosphere nine times.

In March, North Korean missiles fell into sea near Japan, including inside the exclusive economic zone off the Oga Peninsula, Akita Prefecture. In the wake of the launches, the Akita prefectural government conducted an evacuation drill that month.

In April, the central government asked other prefectural governments to carry out evacuation drills.
