Japan: Typhoon causes travel disruptions

Typhoon Jebi made landfall in Japan’s southern prefectures, causing travel disruptions and heavy wind and rain, according to CNN.

The typhoon, the strongest in 25 years, hit the Tokushima prefecture early this afternoon, local time.

Hundreds of domestic flights have been cancelled, as well as international flights from Kansai Airport in Osaka. Both runways were closed, as surges caused the tides in Osaka Bay to reach record levels.

There are also flight cancellations at Itami Airport, in Osaka, and Chubu Centrair International Airport, in Nagoya.
