Reuters reports that Toyota Motor Corp., Nissan Motor Co. and Mazda Motor Corp. on Tuesday suspended work at car assembly plants in southwestern Japan as a safety precaution against a powerful typhoon that was snarling transportation and dumping heavy rains in the region.

Honda Motor Co. had also halted production on Monday night at a factory in the southern island of Kyushu that makes motorcycles, power products and engines, and said it would cancel the day’s work on Tuesday.

The carmakers said they saw no long-term impact from the suspension since lost production could be made up through overtime or other means.

Toyota and Nissan cancelled both shifts at their factories in Kyushu, Japan’s third biggest main island. Nissan, Japan’s second-biggest auto maker, said it planned to make up for the 2,000 units in lost output on September 24.

Mazda suspended work at several plants in the western Japanese prefectures of Hiroshima and Yamaguchi, estimating lost vehicle production at 2,000 to 3,000 units.

Among other manufacturers, Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Toshiba Corp. and Sony Corp. all said their plants in Kyushu were operating as usual, Reuters said.
