HAGATNA, Guam (AP) - About 4,500 Guam residents are without water following the wind, rain and waves brought on by Typhoon Dolphin.

The Pacific Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1EX08Cj) Guam’s water authority is working to restore services by Friday, and the island’s power provider expects to bring the 2,000 customers that make up 4 percent of its total users back online by Tuesday night.

Consolidate Utilities Services public affairs director Heidi Ballendorf spoke on behalf of the water and power authorities. She apologized to residents for the loss of water, saying the utility expected backup generators to keep well pumps working.

Officials are tallying the typhoon’s impact and opening centers where people can report damage. The island is eligible for federal disaster relief at $1 million in losses, according to Guam Homeland Security.
