While the island is hunkering down as Super Typhoon Mawar approaches, James Moylan, Guam’s delegate to Congress, is meeting with federal officials, advocating for support for “our island community.”
“Today, I met with house leadership Speaker Kein McCarthy who offered support and prayers for Guam,” said Moylan, who’s a republican. “They along with several other colleagues in Congress have also expressed their commitment to help ensure Guam receives the resources and attention it needs during this difficult time.”
Additionally, he held an interagency briefing with FEMA, NOAA, Department of Homeland Security, Federal Communications Commission, Department of Defense Indopacom, and the U.S. Coast Guard to get a better grasp of the projections and to begin some planning for the aftermath, inclusive of what assistance can be brought to the table from the federal side.
As Guam prepares and shelters in place for Super Typhoon Mawar, Moylan is praying and thinking of the community.
“Most importantly, I am eager to get back to Guam as early as possible to offer support and a hand for any recovery efforts needed,” he said. “My thoughts and prayers are with you all. We are a strong and resilient community that will get this together. Please stay safe and take care of yourselves and those around you. I look forward to seeing you all soon. God bless, Guam.”
