Yeah just heard the warning on the Japanese Wadning system

It wasn’t long ago Ōsaka was hit by a earthquake either, luckily it didn’t have any major effect on Air travel, although a few airlines gave out travel alerts to passengers bound for Ōsaka 😬

I really miss this island, visited last time in 2015
I live next to the island but far enough.
Especially my brother who lived on the island of Lombok had said the Tsunami alarm sounded.


I had time to see the news on TV, some passengers who will leave has been evacuated on airport apron

Even though an airport was involved, the RWA category is not meant to be a general news stream.

Our thoughts are with all those impacted.
