This Citizen Corps Notification is provided by FEMA's Individual and
Community Preparedness Division.

We would like to provide an update on the earthquake and tsunami that
has impacted Japan and the U.S. Pacific Region.  FEMA is closely
monitoring the affects of the earthquake and subsequent tsunami that
struck Japan early this morning, and as directed by the President, FEMA
is in close contact and coordination with state and local officials and
stands ready to support them in any way needed, through our regional
offices in the West Coast and in the pacific area.

FEMA is working in support of the United States Agency for International
Development (USAID)
