South Korea prepares emergency shelters

Seoul, South Korea: Last week's deadly attack on Yeonpyeong island has escalated military and diplomatic tensions on the Korean Peninsula, and for some in the South Korean capital, Seoul, there is an increasing fear of North Korean retaliation.

Hence, evacuation centres were being prepared in the city on Monday, amidst mounting tensions.

There are 3919 emergency shelters across Seoul - many are housed in subway stations or underground carparks.
Each subway station has gas masks stored in glass cabinets and are called "nation masks".

SOS emergency telephones directly connect people to the emergency control room.

The maintenance area for subway stations have been fixed with machinery to provide clean air in case of an attack.
