Yamaguchi Information

Some information about my part of Japan:

The quakes didn't reach this area so things seem to be proceeding like normal. However, people living near the Seto Inland Sea and the Japan Sea are still under a tsunami advisory. Ube got 30 centimeter waves. Shimonoseki seemed to have gotten the highest waves.

Flights between Yamaguchi-Ube Airport and Haneda Airport resumed as scheduled from this afternoon. A total of three flights had been canceled.

The train lines are still operating as normal except for possibly the Shinkansen to Tokyo. Today was supposed to be the start of the Sakura Shinkansen but all the events scheduled to celebrate it's initial run have been canceled.

Across the nation, 32 university entrance exams have been canceled but Yamaguchi University and Yamaguchi Prefectural University are holding their exams as scheduled.

DMATs (Disaster Medical Assistance Team) from four hospitals have been sent to assist in disaster areas, as have the Red Cross and the police.
