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.

“Our thoughts and our prayers are with the people of Japan. This is a potentially catastrophic disaster, and the images of destruction and flooding coming out of Japan are simply heartbreaking,” he stated.
