Hafa adai. Apologies, it’s been the better part of a calendar year since I’ve been active and posting. Yet, I’m still drawing a solid number of daily page views – most significantly to my posts: How to Form an LLC in Saipan and Climate Crisis Parts 1 & 2. Thank you for your interest.
Obviously I haven’t posted anything about Super Typhoon Yutu hitting Saipan and the CNMI. For any interested, my first-hand account was presented and published by notable national weather experts Dr. Jeff Masters and Bob Henson on their ever-popular Weather Underground website. One of my original photos was also published (with permission, of course).
The CNMI is in for a long journey to recovery. It won’t be fast, it won’t be easy. But it will be done. Here, I am presenting my proposal CNMI: Accelerating Disaster Recovery.
I’ve sent this to many local leaders and am currently in discussion to find ways I can assist. I’m available to help the CNMI in any ways I can. Please feel free to contact me directly, or leave a Disqus comment. I’d look forward to further dialogue. Thank you.
CNMI: Accelerating Disaster Recovery
How a three-way trade program with incentivized volunteerism can: increase opportunities, create work and impactful solutions, enhance quality of life for locals, support local businesses, capture more money within the localized economy, and improve the performance value of each dollar to a minimum of 3x to 5x.
The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands faced back-to-back extreme weather events from Typhoon Mangkhut damaging much of Rota, and a short six weeks later the world’s strongest storm of 2018, Super Typhoon Yutu, destroyed much of Tinian and Saipan. The CNMI has been hit by the strongest storms on the planet in two different calendar years – and barely three years apart.
Yutu’s winds at landfall have only been exceeded by four other landfalling tropical cyclones in world history.
