Omanis safe in typhoon-hit Japan province

MUSCAT: All Omani students are safe in Japan, which was struck by Typhoon Jebi on Tuesday, according to Oman’s Embassy in Japan.
A statement from the embassy said it had got in touch with all Omanis in the affected areas. “There have been no reports of any injuries. We wish for the safety of Japanese people and all residents of Japan,” said the embassy.
Meanwhile, a major international airport in western Japan has been closed, with thousands of people evacuated, in the wake of deadly Typhoon Jebi.
Kansai Airport, a major transport hub serving Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto, was cut off when an ocean tanker hit and damaged its bridge to the mainland.
Jebi, Japan’s most powerful storm in 25 years, has killed at least 10 people. It has left a trail of damage to infrastructure, ripping off roofs, overturning vehicles and cutting power.
