Guam - U.S. President Barack Obama made it clear today that they do not expect harmful levels of radiation from Japan to reach the United States, Hawaii, Alaska or the U.S. Territories in the Pacific. Obama made the call yesterday to evacuate all American citizens in Japan that are within a 50 mile radius of the plant.
He also authorized a voluntary departure of Americans working in northeastern Japan as a precautionary measure. The president's statement follows the one from Governor Eddie Calvo who says there is no evidence of radiological fallout on Guam from the nuclear plant incident.
While Calvo says the situation is being monitored, he says no federal or local agency is raising any alarm for Guam.
