Relevant agencies and localities are recommended to install warning signs at flood-hit- roads due to high tides, and arrange functional forces to instruct people to move to safe areas.

Besides that, districts need to regularly inform on the media about the happenings of the tide and the detailed time when the tides would reach peak for residents to actively cope with tide-triggered flooding by preparing materials such as timber piles, B40 net, canvas, bags of soil, sand, etc.
