Guam spared as typhoon In-Fa passes south

7:27 pm on 21 November 2015

Typhoon In-Fa has passed to the southwest of Guam leaving little effect on the territory.

The typhoon developed near Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia and there were fears it would intensify as it moved towards Guam.

But the storm made its closest approach early on Saturday morning and is now moving away from the island.

The Pacific Daily News says there are no reports of damge to utilities, nor was anybody injured.

But the administrator of the Guam Office of Civil Defense, Chuck Esteves, says residents should remain vigilant as the rear of the storm could still bring damaging winds.
