WASHINGTON -- The United States on Wednesday authorized the first evacuations of Americans out of Japan, taking a tougher stand on the deepening
nuclear crisis and warning U.S. citizens to defer all non-essential travel to any part of the country as unpredictable weather and wind conditions
risked spreading radioactive contamination.
President Barack Obama placed a telephone call to Prime Minister Naoto Kan to discuss Japan's efforts to recover from last week's devastating
earthquake and tsunami, and the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Dai-chi plant. Obama promised Kan that the U.S. would offer constant support for its
close friend and ally, and "expressed his extraordinary admiration for the character and resolve of the Japanese people," the White House said.
Well it begins, I hope they get all Americans out of Japan as soon as possible, this is really getting scary....I pray for the Jaanese and Americans..
