95 percent of island has power; GPA working to restore pocket outages
JIC Release No. 14
Recovery Update: July 31, 2014
In the last major storm that brought destructive winds, it took weeks, even months into the recovery phase for residents to get power. Now, Guam Power Authority reports that 95 percent of the island has power.  GPA is working to restore all leftover outages tonight, pending access to lines due to vegetation and high wind.
Governor Calvo has been coordinating with GPA to restore power island-wide.  Unlike the consistent blackouts of past typhoons, power outages were experienced throughout the island in isolated pockets.
The Guam Power Authority continues to deploy its crews to work on areas that have been impacted.
Power outages have been predominately caused by strong winds, flying debris, and uprooted vegetation. Crews have been working throughout the tropical storm and will continue to work throughout the night.
Residents can call the Guam Power Authority hotline to get updates or report power outages.  Customers can reach dispatchers by calling 475-1472/73/74.  Dispatchers are working with the line crews to relay information.
Governor Calvo thanks the public for their continued patience.
