This article includes the natural disaster measures taken by Tokyo Metro. In addition to those taken by the former Teito Rapid Transit Authority, Tokyo Metro has been taking new measures -- based on experiences from the Great East Japan Earthquake and a large-scale flood damage simulation recently released by the government -- in preparation for the inland earthquake expected in the capital and flooding from the Arakawa River.
