Water restored to 90% of Tinian, but power still out

Posted: Updated:

Two weeks after Super Typhoon Yutu hit, Tinian reports some progress in its recovery effort.

More than 90-percent of water service has been restored to the island, but the power is still out, and a majority of homes still need to be repaired or rebuilt.

Meanwhile, Disaster recovery centers were opened Friday in Tinian, Saipan and Rota for residents who suffered damage and property loss. Representatives from FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration will be available to answer questions about home and business recovery funds and other disaster relief.

And Guam Animals In Need sent a disaster relief team to Saipan and Tinian. It will provide direct care to injured animals, aid with shelter repairs, and conduct damage assessments for FEMA. GAIN also delivered 200 pounds of medicine and medical supplies, and two pallets of pet food and animal shelter supplies.
