Press Release

Washington, DC – Thursday, Congresswoman Aumua Amata released the following statement concerning the powerful Typhoon Yutu, which has struck CNMI causing severe damages and will also affect Guam:

“This extremely powerful typhoon is causing great damage to our friends and neighbors in the Northern Marianas and Guam. Our prayers are with CNMI as they will face a major recovery effort and our thoughts are with those in Guam still experiencing the effects of this huge storm. Many people will be displaced, and many will lose possessions, homes and businesses. We have deep connections with our Pacific neighbors, especially the other U.S. Territories, and there are certainly Samoans living in the path of this storm. I trust that FEMA will strongly support them in this time of need and the recovery to follow, and may God bless all the efforts to stay safe and help others.”
