President Obama held a press conference at 12:30 p.m. EST regarding the devastating tsunami that hit Japan on Friday afternoon. He assured a group of reporters, and the live feed that broadcast his address, that a U.S. aircraft carrier was in Japan, with others on the way to aid in rescue efforts and account for all military personnel stationed there.

He also stated that a ship was en route to provide assistance as needed, and that U.S. embassy workers in Tokyo had been moved to an outside location.
