けいほう （警報） － warning, alarm
You know, you learn words best when they are used in real life. Today’s word is けいほう. Why today? Because a warning has just been issued about the approaching ‘typhoon 23’.
If you look at the kanji you may already notice that the first kanji, 警, is the same as けいさつ の けい meaning commandment. 報 means news, report… the same as from information, 情報 （じょうほう）.
To anyone in Japan – stay safe!
