Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation, including the Hospital and the Division of Public Health would like to update the Pacific community regarding the situation in Saipan. As of today (Day 13) the island continues to slowly recover from the devastation of Typhoon Soudelor, measured as the strongest typhoon in the world this year, and reported to be the strongest typhoon in CNMI in 47 years. Wind speeds were measured at 214 MPH at one Saipan location. On day 13 post-typhoon, nearly 100% of our 48,000 residents remain without electricity, and nearly 80% of the island remains without water.
