Cancellations and shortages in Tokyo


Monday morning in Tokyo, and many people try to get back to work in the wake of what’s been billed the country’s “worst crisis since the Second World War.”

The everyday commute is more difficult than usual.

More than 100 train services in the Tokyo area are partially or completely closed.

People are eager for information, but there seems to be little sign of panic in Tokyo. Some reports quote experts who are warning there is a 70 percent chance of another damaging earthquake by Wednesday.

Shops have also begun to run low on some supplies, a result of transport and delivery difficulties. There are also reports of panic-buying in some neighbourhoods.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
