Snowy Weather Continues Across Fukuoka

Kyushu Expressway was partially closed as of Jan. 7 evening, and Higashi Kyushu Expressway and some local roads. JR Kyushu had some delays and cancelations for Kagoshima Line and Nippo due to strong wind, while its shinkansen operated without significant delay. School closures have been announced in several areas, including Chikuho Area and Kitakyushu City. As the entire region might experience sudden-heavy snowfall between Jan. 8 ~ Jan. 9, the regional transportation authority advises people to refrain from making non-essential travels. The forecast calls for 10-centimeter snow on the mountainside and 5 in flat areas within twenty-four hours until the evening of Jan. 8. Source: RKB / NHK
