Guam - Several arrivals from Japan were canceled including from Nagoya, Niigata, Kansai, Narita. Likewise departures to Japan are affected. Passengers are asked to contact their airlines for information and updates on these flight schedules.

In the meantime, Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association president Mary Torre says they've been able to accommodate around 2,000 passengers in the hotels after the roads were reopened at 11pm last night. In an effort to ensure all passengers are accommodated, she says the hotels have been able to add extra bedspace by placing cots and blankets in the ballrooms.

She says GHRA had been working with the Guam International Airport, the Guam Visitors Bureau and agents on housing these passengers who she says are still on island.
