Typhoon Mawar leaves trail of destruction as it exits Guam

A TYPHOON that slammed into Guam, knocking out power and flooding buildings with a powerful storm surge, was moving away today – leaving residents of the US Pacific Ocean territory to survey the damage.

Governor Lou Leon Guerrero is set to venture out when conditions allow to see what damage has been wrought on the island, a key US military outpost and home to 170,000 people.
