Chile earthquake causes local event cancellations

Date Posted: 2010-03-04

The tsunami warnings issued Sunday in the wake of the massive earthquake in Chile forced cancellation of events across Okinawa.

A baseball game between the Yokohama Baystars and Rakuten at Ginowan City Baseball Stadium was canceled. Youngsters playing on local baseball teams were disappointed by the decision, as they’d wanted to see the professional teams. “We wanted to see the play of Murata, but of course, we are afraid if a big tsunami comes,” said one 11-year-old. “There was nothing we could do.”

A high school graduation ceremony was cancelled on Okinawa, and a meeting of local delegates of the Democratic Party of Japan had to cancel their event. Churaumi Beach and Dolphin Theater closed, and the ‘Sea Road’ in Uruma City was closed, too. In Naha City, the Kokuba River water gates to Manko Park were also closed.
