The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center removed warnings for all areas except Japan and Russia by Sunday morning Asia time.
Elder Gary E. Stevenson of the Seventy, and president of the Asia North Area, said the Micronesia Guam Mission was the first to be affected by the tsunami warning. In an e-mail to the Church News, he said the mission reported that unit leaders, assisted by missionaries, saw to it that members and missionaries were moved to higher elevation areas on the Micronesia islands of Kosrae, Chuuk, Yap and Pohnpei until the tsunami warning expired.
Elder Stevenson said members and missionaries were also warned in Guam and Saipan. He reported that there are no Church-owned buildings or missionary apartments in Guam that are located in "high-warning" areas.
