In the event of tsunami, situations can be pretty chaotic. This Tsunami Warning System has been designed to combine function of traffic signs to give emergency routes information in the city, but it can also be used as general traffic sign during normal times. When these traffic signs receive a tsunami warning, it would automatically switch to evacuation signs, guiding people toward the shelters. In this way, people that live close to the sea/beach are always updated with the status of the tsunami, and they always know where to seek shelter.
