March 11 (Bloomberg) -- Sony Corp. halted operations at six factories in the Tohoku region of northeastern Japan after an earthquake, said Yasuhiro Okada, a spokesman at the Tokyo-based company.

All employees at the factories have been evacuated, he said. The company is assessing the fallout from power outages and damages to buildings, he said.

One factory making Blu-ray discs and magnetic tapes in Tagajo City, Miyagi Prefecture, had its ground floor flooded, said Shinji Obana, another Sony spokesman.
