Typhoon Nabi leaves Marianas

By Associated Press

HAGATNA, Guam (AP) _ Typhoon ``Nabi'' passed through the Northern Mariana Islands today, hitting the capital of Saipan with wind gusts up to 75 miles per hour.

There were no reports of injuries or deaths associated with the storm.

Officials say about 600 people found shelter in eight public schools on Saipan, as crews worked to restore electrical power and water service to most of the island.

An official assessment of the damage had not yet begun.

The National Weather Service says the center of the storm with maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour passed within about 35 miles of Saipan before moving away.

At last report, ``Nabi'' was located 100 miles northwest of the U-S commonwealth. It's expected to intensive as it moves to the west-northwest at ten miles per hour.

On neighboring Guam, wind gusts reach about 50 miles per hour as the storm dumped about three inches of rain on the U-S territory.
