Little damage from typhoon to Marianas islands

HAGATNA, Guam (AP) -- Officials say there was little damage on U.S. flagged islands in the Marianas and no injuries after Typhoon Vongfong.

Government officials in Guam, Saipan, Rota, and Tinian report minor storm damage from the typhoon, which had maximum sustained winds of 105 mph as it moved through the islands early Monday.

A spokesman for the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas in Saipan said the storm skirted the island and only one building had a tin roof blown away.

Power has been mostly restored but there are areas that are still without water.

Rota Mayor Melchor Mendiola says power had been restored completely by Tuesday.

Tinina Mayor Ramon M. Dela Cruz says there was little damage there.

Guam officials continue to assess damage, but say there were no injuries.
