During opening statements of Thursday’s NCUA board meeting, Chairman Todd Harper said seven examiners happened to be in Guam working as the Category 4 Typhoon Mawar struck the island earlier this week.

The storm has left nearly the entire island nation without power. Harper said, “Our team sheltered in place together and are safe. We are trying to get them out in the coming days.” Both Vice Chairman Kyle Hauptman and Board Member Rodney Hood expressed their hopes the examiners would be able to get home soon.
