Heavy rains bring flooding to southern villages

Guam - The island continues to experience heavy rains as we feel the effects of a tropical disturbance to the north of us.

The monsoon surge on the south side of the circulation is saturating the southern part of Guam especially in Agat where several parts are flooded. Vice Mayor Agustin Quintanilla says he's sought assistance from Guam Homeland Security and the American Red Cross.

"But it would be nice if we had a contingency in each village so that if something this happens, we can home people instead of going out looking for the people to stay overnight like last night, there's one family that stayed over at the mayor's office, so I gave them a place to stay for now, until they get ready and the red cross comes down and assist them in cleaning up their place and moving back at their home," he said.

Quintanilla says over three dozen families had reported heavy flooding at their homes.
