Red Cross Japan Earthquake Report 1

March 11, 2011

Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan

At this time the disaster in Japan and its effects on California is still developing. Our understanding is phone lines are down across the nation in Japan and therefore the Red Cross is not able to make contact with our representatives in Japan.

We recommend continuing listening to the news for updates and try to reach your loved one by email, cell phone or SMS. You may also monitor our national Red Cross website: http://www.redcross.org; International Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies: http://www.ifrc.org; and that of the International Committee of the Red Cross: http://www.icrc.org.

You may also trying calling the State Department:
1-888-407-4747
202-647-5225

Our local Red Cross is not deploying volunteers at this time. The Red Cross has trained international teams to respond internationally, therefore, we are not deploying volunteers to Japan. At this time we are on standby awaiting information on how this may affect California and the West Coast. Watch our website: http://www.arcnec.org for updated information.

Local Red Cross volunteers will be notified by email and/or telephone if there is a need for deployment.
