Tropical storm Kammuri caused flooding in various parts of the island but no major injuries or damage.

Minor damages were reported on social media outlets including video from Umatac of a canopy being damaged and with the heavy rains, flooding was reported throughout the island.

Civil Defense Spokeswoman Jenna Blas said there were no reports of serious injury.

DPW Deputy Director Jesse Garcia says there have been some reports of downed tree limbs and vegetation, but nothing major.

“My crews were responding. Obstructions were taken off the road,” Garcia said.

Flooding was an issue at Polaris Point, Route 1 Marine Corp drive in Piti. There was overflow reported in Merizo and in Chalan Pago near DOC.

Guam Homeland Security and the Office of Civil Defense have also requested all GovGuam departments and agencies as well as concerned private and non-profit organizations to submit their respective preliminary damage assessments in reference to Tropical Storm Kammuri no later than 5 p.m. Friday.
