Guam - Guam Power Authority officials confirm that an islandwide outage struck at 7:25pm. Agency spokesperson Art Perez says crews are working to secure fast track generators to restore power to the main power plant in Piti. Perez says it may take between 4 to 6 hours from when the outage occurred to reenergize and restore power.
He says GPA lost 15 circuits and the power tripped at Cabras 3 and 4, which led to the islandwide blackout.
