State Dept., Pentagon offer to evacuate family members from Tokyo
 


TOKYO — Six days into the world’s worst nuclear emergency in 25 years, as the crisis at one of Japan’s damaged power plants worsened, the United States offered Wednesday night to evacuate family members of State Department and Pentagon officials from northern Japan while urging other Americans to stay at least 50 miles from the plant — four times the distance recommended by the Japanese government.

The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo will remain open, Undersecretary of State Patrick F. Kennedy said in Washington, adding, “We have not ordered [family members] to leave. We have made this opportunity available to them, should they choose to exercise it.”
