Guam - From manholes overflowing, downed power lines, fallen trees and flooding our island's mayors are reporting damages they have seen during their primary inspections of the villages.

Dededo mayor Melissa Savares told KUAM News, "We have a lot of downed trees vegetation, power lines that are down because big trees have fallen and snapped the lines down we also have lots and lots of flooding so it's really difficult for a lot of vehicles - we have had a lot of the last two days so of course the water is not draining right now as quick as it use to it should be so we have cars that are stalled in the road ways because of the flooding."

Savares says they are responding to reports of damages throughout the villages and conducting an initial assessment of the area her crews have been out removing trees and speaking with residents who may be in harm's way as a result of down power lines. Savares adds that if residents do notice a downed power line not to approach it but instead contact her office at 632-5203.
