BOXER STATEMENT ON EARTHQUAKE IN JAPAN, TSUNAMI IN THE PACIFIC

 

Washington, D.C. – Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) released the following statement today after a devastating 8.9 earthquake struck Japan and triggered a tsunami that rippled across the Pacific, including the West Coast: 

 

“My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan and the Japanese-American community following this horrific tragedy. We stand ready to assist the Japanese people as they work to recover and rebuild.

 

“I commend federal, state and local officials for their vigilance in alerting residents along the West Coast to the threat of a tsunami and helping those in low-lying areas to evacuate to higher ground.”

 

Members of Senator Boxer’s staff have been reaching out to officials at the Japanese Embassy in Washington and the Japanese Consulates in San Francisco and Los Angeles as well as Japanese-American community leaders to discuss ways to assist in the relief effort.
