Guam was struck by Typhoon Pongona with sustanted winds of 150 mph, and
gusts of 184 mph.  Electricity is out on the entire island.  Most
telephone service is down, although some calls have been received.  The
University of Guam, the the ccTLD manager for .GU, is offline.  Backup
name service for .GU is being provided by NS.RIPE.NET, although I haven't
found working Internet service to the island.
