Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo today was briefed by federal officials on the effects of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the northern coast of Honshu, Japan and sent tsunami warnings throughout the Pacific. Bordallo joined a conference call between members of Congress, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Coast Guard and the National Weather Service.

Guam's delegate says the investments made in the Tsunami Warning System after 2004 has shown that the island is prepared. She says she has reached out to the Ambassador of Japan and the Consul General of Guam to offer any assistance that the federal government may provide to help the people of that country.
