Guam – The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the situation in Japan in the aftermath of a powerful earthquake, measuring 8.9 magnitude, that struck northern Japan on March 11.  U.S. citizens should avoid travel to Japan at this time.  This Travel Alert expires on April 1, 2011.
Read the Advisory on U.S. State Department Website
The Department of State strongly urges U.S. citizens to avoid tourism and non-essential travel to Japan at this time.  Tokyo airports are currently closed; other airports in Japan may be closed or have restricted access.  Public transportation, including trains and subways are closed in the Tokyo area, and service has been interrupted in other areas.  Many roads have been damaged in the Tokyo area and in northern Japan.

Strong aftershocks are likely for weeks following a strong earthquake such as this one.  The American Red Cross recommends that in the event of aftershocks, persons should move to open spaces away from walls, windows, buildings, and other structures that may collapse, and should be alert to the danger of falling debris.  If you are indoors, DROP, COVER AND HOLD ON:  If possible, seek cover under a sturdy desk or table, hold on, and protect your eyes by pressing your face against your arm.  If there is no table or desk nearby, sit on the floor against an interior wall away from windows, bookcases or tall furniture that could fall on you.  Avoid damaged buildings and downed power lines.  Great care should be used with matches, lighters, candles, or any open flame due to the possibility of disrupted gas lines.

U.S. citizens currently in Japan should contact family and friends in the United States to confirm their well-being at the earliest opportunity.  Where internet and telephone services are not available, it may be possible to contact people using SMS (Cell text message) or other forms of social media such as Twitter and Facebook.  U.S. citizens may contact the Department of State at JapanEmergencyUSC@state.gov

My heart and prays go out to the folks in Japan.  The Sunami

In Case of Emergency can a Roth IRA help you?

I came across an article on Roth IRAs and thought what a great In Case of Emergency backup plan.  According to the information I was reading this is a way to tap into the initial funds you deposit in a Roth IRA without a penalty, and use them as  emergency funds.  In Case of Emergency, if you pull money from many other type of investment you may be subject to penalties.  So ask your accountant or financial planner if this is a good backup plan for you, In Case of Emergency.  You should also try to have emergency funds that are separate from a Roth IRA.  Here is the link to the article that will hopefully help you improve on your emergency funds, written by Chris Farrell, “Roth, the emergency-emergency fund”

In Case of Emergency, what would you do if our water was contaminated?  Do you have enough water on hand to survive in case of emergency?

Global Water Shortage Looms In New Century

When most U.S. citizens think about water shortages — if they think about them at all — they think about a local problem, possibly in their town or city, maybe their state or region. We don’t usually regard such problems as particularly worrisome, sharing confidence that the situation will be readily handled by investment in infrastructure, conservation, or other management strategies. Whatever water feuds arise, e.g., between Arizona and California, we expect to be resolved through negotiations or in the courtroom.

But shift from a local to a global water perspective, and the terms dramatically change. The World Bank reports that 80 countries now have water shortages that threaten health and economies while 40 percent of the world — more than 2 billion people.  In case of emergency water shortage is a big deal.  Make sure to sign up for your copy of WalletICE TM.   click here for the balance of this article
