As some of you may know,Super Typhoon Jebi is making its way into Japan. It is the most powerful typhoon in 25 years. A few hours ago,due to heavy rain,Kansai Airport’s A and B runways are both currently flooded,causing hundreds of flights to be canceled. Then,the terminal flooded. Then,after that,the power went out. Then,if it couldn’t get any worse,there were 3,000 people trapped inside the airport. The airport staff do not know how long it will take to fix it. There’s heavy rain and powerful winds in my area,and a sign just blew away into the road! Then Kansai Airport’s bad luck struck again. The bridge linking the island airport and the main land was collided by an oil tanker due to the winds. Here is a photo by the news.
UPDATEAt around 7:00AM JST,boats from Kobe Airport arrived to pick up the trapped passengers. The rescue efforts are estimated to take up 1-3 days.
