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 the people of Japan. It’s potentially catastrophic disaster and the images of the destruction and flooding coming out of Japan are simply heartbreaking. Japan is of course one of our strongest and closest allies.
And this morning I spoke to Prime Minister Kang, on behalf of the American people, I conveyed our deepest condolences, especially the victims and their families. And I offer Japanese friends whatever assistance needed.      
We currently have an aircraft carrier in Japan and another is on its way. We also have a ship in route to the Mariana Islands to assist as needed. The defense apartment is working to account all our military personnel in Japan.
US embassy personnel in Tokyo have moved to the outside location and the state apartment is working to account for and assist any and all American citizens who are in the country.
Tsunami warning has been issued across the Pacific and we’ve already seen the initial waves from the tsunami come ashore on Guam and other US territories in Alaska and Hawaii as well as along the west coast.
Here in the United States, there hasn’t been any major damage so far. But we’re taking this very seriously and we’re monitoring the situation very closely. FEMA is fully activated and is coordinating with state and local official to support these regions as necessary.
Let me just stress: people who are told to evacuate, Do as you’re told. Today’s event remands us just how fragile life can be. Our heart go out to our friends in Japan that across the region and we’re going to stand with them as they recover and rebuild from this tragedy.
