Guam - It seems the investments in upgrading our island's power system to include pole hardening, line upgrades and hardware upgrades are paying off, that according to Guam Power Authority spokesperson Art Perez who reports minimal power outages from Typhoon Vongfong.

He told KUAM News, "We had reports of downed lines and fielded calls of vegetation coming in a large one was in particular, am intersection of Gayinero Road and Route 15 up in Yigo, that was a pretty large tree that had to be cleared and we were able to isolate service to that particular intersection and restore customers."

Perez says that they expect to restore power to the remaining pocket areas by this evening.

Meanwhile Guam Waterworks Authority spokesperson Heidi Ballendorf in the meantime says there were no reports of water or wastewater issues from the brush with Mother Nature. "Because our lines did not run dry, that does not merit in our standards a need for any boil water notice because we never lost water, however we have made a commitment to continue to work with Guam EPA and if the Guam EPA does decide to do testing, under the proper conditions for instance right now is not the proper conditions, we would want it to stop raining," she explained,
