FEMA prepares 130+ staff, mobilizes generators and other equipment
Over 130 Federal Emergency Management Agency staff are deployed or pre-staged to aid local response efforts in the aftermath of Typhoon Mawar. FEMA also prepared over 100 generators, emergency communications equipment, and specialized personnel.
"Typhoon Mawar passed over the northern portions of Guam, however extremely strong winds remain in Guam, Rota, and areas of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands for the next several hours," a press release by the agency said.
FEMA notes that its Distribution Center in Guam is fully stocked with four times the amount of food and water compared to Typhoon Mangkhut in 2018. Additional commodities and supplies are on stand-by in larger warehouses in Hawaii.
They plan to deploy a second Incident Management Team to Guam.
