Extensive Recovery Work in Saipan after Typhoon Soudelor

Extensive Recovery Work in Saipan after Typhoon Soudelor

Posted in: Diesel Generators Latest News Power Outages

Soudelor is the worst storm to strike Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands in nearly 30 years. With many of Saipan’s 55,000 residents still without water and electricity after Typhoon Soudelor slammed into the US Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, President Obama has declared a major disaster, and everyone from local community groups to federal agencies have been responding. Saipan’s Disaster Recovery Center opened last week with officers from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), US Small Business Administration, and American Red Cross.

Relief supplies and humanitarian aid have begun to arrive in Saipan. Hundreds of critically displaced residents have been able to leave emergency shelters with tents, tarps, and cots for temporary housing. Running water has been restored to some areas, with water distribution stations for those areas still without running water. Most major roadways have been cleared, although stoplights and streetlights remain unlit because of island-wide power outages. Power is estimated to take almost two months to be fully restored in all areas, in part because even utility poles need to be brought in by ship.

Here at Triton Power we are deeply saddened by the situation the residents of Saipan are going through at this time.  We understand power is an essential need for any country and want to remind you that we carry the largest selection of Diesel Powered Generators In Stock and Ready To Ship. We have warehouses in the United States and Asia full of units ready to provide Saipan with the power it needs now.  Our inventory includes EPA and Non-EPA diesel generators at 60Hz which will  meet all of the requirements for the Saipan area.
