US Urges Americans Not to Go to Japan

Sunday, 13 March 2011 08:57 AM EDT

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. State Department is advising Americans to avoid traveling to Japan at this time.

The Asian nation, a close American ally, was struck by devastating earthquakes, a deadly tsunami and is now threatened by possible radiation leaks from several nuclear reactors damaged in the natural disaster. Japan's prime minister says his country is facing its worst crisis since the end of World War II.

In a travel alert issued Sunday, the State Department is urging all non-essential U.S. government personnel to defer travel to Japan. It also says Americans should avoid tourism and other unnecessary visits to Japan for now.
