Japanese automakers close plants as Typhoon Roke bears down
Japanese automakers are bracing for Typhoon Roke as well. According to reports, Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Mitsubishi have all closed down plants or cancelled shifts at facilities affected by the storm.
This is the second typhoon to hit Japan so far this year, and the country averages between two and four of the storms every year. In other words, this may not be the last weather-related outage you hear about from Japanese automakers in 2011.
