    Earthquake affects air, rail and road transport in Japan: latest update.

    Rail, air and road transportation services were disrupted this morning in north-eastern and eastern Japan, including the Tokyo metropolitan area, following a strong earthquake that rocked the country’s north-eastern region early in the day.

    Sendai airport was temporarily closed after the Japan Meteorological Agency issued a tsunami warning for the area following the quake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.4, forcing Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways to cancel incoming and outgoing flights, according to the transport ministry.

    Bullet train services were temporarily stopped on the Tohoku, Joetsu, Hokuriku and Yamagata Shinkansen lines, East Japan Railway said.

    The tsunami warning has now been lifted but aftershocks still continue to affect the area. The transport ministry reports that transportation systems have been mostly restored.
