Guam - The Guam National Guard's 94th Civil Support Team was deployed to the Guam Main Facility post office and the Guam International Airport to screen cargo arriving from Japan. War on Terror News reports the team was tasked with identifying if any items had potential radiological contamination.

The article states readings at the post office remained negative, and the mission there was closed. Guam governor Eddie Calvo and CNMI governor Benigno Fitial stated food in the Marianas is safe to eat, and that it is highly unlikely radiation fallout will endanger residents and no radiation has been detected on passengers or cargo entering Guam.

The governors also received assurances from federal officials that our area is safe and support is being provided to allay any concerns.
