Guam seeks $6 million for typhoon damage

By Associated Press

(Hagatna, Guam-AP) -- Government officials in Guam are seeking six (m) million dollars from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for damage inflicted by Typhoon Tingting last month.

Governor Felix Camacho already has asked President Bush to declare Guam a major disaster area to expedite federal assistance.

He says a damage assessment shows public buildings suffered about four-and-a-half (m) million dollars in damage.

Homes and businesses suffered about one-and-a-half (m) million dollars in losses.

Tingting passed Guam in late June dumping about 20 inches of rain in just 48 hours.

Although Guam did not experience the intense wind damage that other typhoons caused, Tingting caused other problems including flooding and mudslides.
