Default Ship smashes into Kansai airport bridge as typhoon hits Japan

Ship smashes into Kansai airport bridge as typhoon hits Japan
Full story:

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- A tanker smashed into the bridge linking Kansai
International Airport with the mainland and left around 3,000 people
stranded on Tuesday as strong winds and high waves from a powerful
typhoon blasted western Japan.

The airport, which sits on a manmade island in Osaka Bay, has been
flooded and closed since the afternoon. It will not resume operation at
least until Wednesday evening, according to airline officials.

The damage to one of the biggest airports in Japan -- mainly used by
visitors to cities in the Kansai area such as Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe --
could affect the country's tourism boom.
