Guam - Guam Homeland Security Advisor Michael Cary Reemphasizes there is no radiation threat to Guam from the damaged nuclear power plants in Japan. He says they have been receiving numerous phone calls from concerned residents regarding the issue. Cary says officials will continue to monitor the situation.

He said, "Monday and Tuesday in Andersen Air Force base the Air Force put out its monitoring systems and got zero, they will continue to do the periodic checks and obviously we'll alert if anything and of course they are at the northern most end of the island."

He adds the radiation is geographically contained and that local officials are prepared in the event there are any radiation threats to the island. Cary says the Guam National Guard Civil Support Team is also equipped to identify if there are any risks to the island.
