6.6-magnitude earthquake damages New Chitose Airport (Sapporo) terminal


A cluster of earthquakes, including one of 6.6-magnitude, has struck Japan’s Northern island of Hokkaido, close to Chitose & Sapporo. New Chitose Sapporo Airport says there is damage to its terminals and was forced to cancel all flights for the rest of the day. The runways have been kept intact.

It’s the second major Japanese airport that is out of commission this week as on Tuesday 4 September Typhoon Jebi hit Osaka Kansai Airport.
