[Homework]2011-03-14 奥巴马针对日本地震的讲话
Before I begin, I want to say a few words about the terrible earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan earlier today. First and foremost, our thoughts and our prayers are with people of Japan. It is potentially catastrophic disaster, and even images of the destruction and flooding coming out of Japan are simply heartbreaking.

Japan is, of course, our strongest and closest allies, and this morning I spoke to Prime Minister Kan. On behalf of the American people, I conveyed our deepest condolences, especially the victims and their families, and I offer our Japanese friends whatever assistance is needed.

We currently have an America aircraft carrier in Japan, and another is on its way. We also have ship in route to the Marianas Islands to assist as needed. The Defense Department is working to account for all our military personnel in Japan. US embassy personnel in Tokyo has moved to an outside location, and the state department is working to account for and assist any and all American citizens who are in the country.

Tsunami warning have been issued across the pacific, and we’ve already seen initial waves from the tsunami come ashore on Guam and other US territories, in Alaska and Hawaii as well as alone the west coast. Here in the United States, there hasn’t been any major damage so far, but we took it very seriously and we are monitoring the situation very closely. FEMA is fully activated and is coordinating with state and local officials to support these regions as necessary.

Let me just stress that if people are told to evacuate, do as you are told. Today’s events remind us how fragile life can be. Our hearts go out to our friends in Japan and across the region and we are going to stand with them as they recover and rebuild from this tragedy.
