WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that federal disaster aid has been made available to the Territory of Guam to supplement territory and local recovery efforts in the area affected by Typhoon Dolphin during the period of May 13-16, 2015. 

The President's action makes federal funding available to territory and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by Typhoon Dolphin in the Territory of Guam.

Federal funding is available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures for the entire Territory of Guam.

Rosalyn L. Cole has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area.  Cole said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the territory and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.
