Re: thanks

They are near Koriyama, which I read was where many of the initial evacuees were sent. Since they are my ex-'s parents, my only info comes through the Teen. Initial earthquake broke windows in their place. Some people in the area hurt by falling objects. Last I heard local medical facilities are overwhelmed or not functioning. I know that my ex- would like to either go there or get them to Tokyo, hence my desire to know the state of the highways or trains.

If you can figure out the route Koriyama is on this page will tell you if the train line is opperational.

Re: thanks

Re-checked, that line stops before koriyama at nasushibara due to the earthquake, two stops before koriyama. After that it would have to be a bus (if they are running) or drive 65 km to koriyama.
