Typhoon Mawar hit Guam Wednesday, bringing with it strong winds, lightning, heavy rain and widespread power outages across the U.S. Pacific territory. Typhoon Mawar is the strongest storm to hit Guam in decades.

An extreme wind warning remains in place through Wednesday night, with expected sustained winds of over 115 mph. Winds knocked down trees and power lines Wednesday afternoon, leaving much of the 30-mile-wide island without power.

Typhoon Mawar is a tropical cyclone that developed in the northwestern Pacific, and it’s moving slowly – about 8 mph – which creates a higher probability for significant rainfall and flooding. A flash flood warning is in effect through Thursday morning, and the National Weather Service is expecting up to 25 inches of rain in some areas.
