I'm on the west coast. We have evacuation routes for tsunamis but I've
never seen any evacuation centers. The tag appears to be from the
Phillipines [1] where most of the nodes are clustered.

Slightly of topic, shouldn't the correct tag be evacuation_centre? There is
a small number of evacuation_centre in taginfo.
