Hurricane Mawar hit the northern US island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean on Thursday, causing severe damage due to the winds that accompanied it.
The wind speed reached nearly 225 km/h, and is expected to continue until Friday, according to the US Meteorological Center.
And the meteorologists stated that this giant cyclone constitutes a “triple threat”, as it is likely to bring with it “high winds” and “torrential rain” and lead to “coastal flooding that could be fatal.”
And the meteorologists warned that the threat of the hurricane is not limited to the island of Guam, but also includes Rota, the other American island in the Mariana archipelago.
US President Joe Biden declared a state of emergency in Guam on Tuesday, according to the White House.
