Typhoon Jebi impacts Japan
Typhoon Jebi made landfall near Kansai in western Japan on Tuesday, September 4. Jebi was the most powerful storm in a quarter of a century and left a trail of destruction to local infrastructure.
Kansai airport (KIX), a major transport hub serving Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto, was evacuated and closed due to storm surge. The airport was cut off from the mainland when an ocean tanker hit and damaged its connecting bridge. All flights were cancelled and a date for airport reopening has not been released. All the transportation to and from Kansai International Airport has been suspended and the bridge remains closed. The Ports of Osaka and Kobe have stopped operations and authorities do not expect any ship activity until further notice.
FedEx Trade Networks will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.
