Recovery

“We continue the work of rebuilding our lives, our homes and our community after Super Typhoon Yutu in October 2018. We remain committed as ever to rebuild stronger with the help of FEMA, our federal partners, private sector partners, nongovernmental organizations, and volunteers. Our resiliency and our ability to come together are why we will build a stronger Marianas for the future.”

– Governor Ralph DLG. Torres

In the early hours of October 25, 2018, the Marianas was devastated by the worst storm to hit US soil in over 80 years. 200 mph winds tested our spirits. We all had friends and family members who experienced the worst of these conditions. But what we suffered through together, we are overcoming together.

Under the Torres-Palacios administration, we continue the work of rebuilding our lives, our homes, and our community. The road to recovery remains a long one, but we remain committed as ever to rebuild stronger with the help of FEMA, our federal partners, private sector partners, nongovernmental organizations, and the countless volunteers.

We will get our islands back to true normalcy in the near future— a future where our economy is back on track, our students will no longer be in classroom tents, but in state-of-the-art facilities that will be the best schools in the Pacific, and brand new permanent homes that will be built to last. Our resiliency and our ability to come together are why we will build a Marianas that is stronger than any typhoon.

Torres-Palacios Administration Set on Streamlining and Modernizing Permitting Process

In an effort to address what is often a cumbersome and, sometimes, lengthy permitting process for businesses and investors, Governor Ralph DLG. Torres and Lt. Governor Arnold I. Palacios have prioritized a complete review and revamp of the process with the goal of creating a more understandable and easier way to do business in the CNMI.
