There are 10 Taiwanese nationals stranded in the southern part of the Aso area in Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan’s Kyushu, including seven university students, Taiwan’s representative office in Fukuoka said Sunday.
The university students were working as interns at a hot spring hotel in Aso, an official at the liaison office told CNA by telephone, noting that they have made contact with the students and will send a car to pick them up the next day.
The traffic of most access roads to Aso have been severed due to landslides caused by multiple earthquakes since Thursday, but the Taiwan office said it has found that there is still one mountain road open to traffic into the quake-hit town.
After devising a plan to drive there, a vehicle will be dispatched to take the students out of Aso, the office said. [FULL STORY]
