Run for your life! Run to the nearest car park located on higher ground.
ichimoku san ni nigero! takadai no chuushajou ni hashirinasai

一目散に ichimoku san ni at full speed
Run can mean 逃げる nigeru to escape走る hashiru (action of running)、経営する keiei suru (to run a business), etc depending on the context.

This signboard was seen at a seaside in Sendai on Dec 2009, two years before the Tohoku Earthquake that created a tidal wave that killed more than 10,000 lives on March 11.
