Typhoon Mangkhut hit us Monday here on Guam. Sustained winds 110-115 mph. Lots of rain. Neighbors mango tree fell onto our feeder line for power between pole and our house.  Also the weight from the tree on the line bent our weatherhead horizontal. That was the only damage we sustained. Weatherhead repaired yesterday by electrician.  GPA (Guam Power Authority) will come out and hook up line. Power has been restored to about 60% of the island.

The Typhoon has increased in intensity...you all take care.

I don't know if they are available here, but kerosene lamps are a much better option than candles. They burn longer and are safer than candles. We brought a bunch of them with us when we moved here.

We still have no power at our house on Guam since Mangkhut struck. When it gets dark, we bring in the solar garden lights to give us some light. They stay pretty bright until morning. Got plenty of LED lanterns and flashlights too. The LED lights don't eat up your batteries.

This is very low-rent; please don't laugh.

Got a tremendous number of those empty 15-peso disposable plastic lighters with the little flashlights. In the dark, you put each one next to a glass of water and, presto, emergency lighting! You can illuminate a very large area that way with a bunch of old lighters. Kind of atmospheric actually.

Okay, you can laugh now. Works in a pinch though!

If you put it next to a glass of beer you have mood lighting!

I saved all the batteries from old / broken phones

You cab reverse them by using alligator clips and a phone battery universal charger

Couldn't find

School's closed for the second day in a row here and we're farther from the storm than you are Lee. The teachers will make any excuse to get a day off work, lol.

I ain't complaining though. My resto is full of teachers eating pizza and drinking beer (we're the only restaurant in town) and it ain't even 9 AM yet. Whatever, it's the Philippines; you just go with it.

The elementary school next to my house is also closed for classes yet people are lined down the street seeking free school supplies that are being given away.Timing seems odd to me.
