Kumamoto Earthquake situation updates

Humanity Road has detailed updates with extensive links about the situation in Kumamoto.

Also, if you view Kumamoto in Google Maps and turn on the traffic view, you can get a very good idea of the road situation. A few years ago we had a partial Kyushu Highway road collapse after heavy rain, and the situation was similar, with trucks clogging up local main roads when the highway was shut.  Presumably a similar thing is happening there now with supplies to surrounding areas also slowed down by road and rail closures.
