Description:"Super Typhoon Pongsona (Pong-sahn-WAH) was one of the most intense typhoons to ever strike the island of Guam. It was comparable to Super Typhoon Paka (1997) and was exceeded only by Karen (1962) and the Typhoon of 1900. Due to the magnitude of this event and its impact on Guam, a service assessment team was formed to examine the warning and forecast services provided to the Guam Civil Defense and local officials, the media, and the public. Service assessments provide a valuable contribution to ongoing efforts to improve the quality and timeliness of the National Weather Service products and services. Findings in this assessment will help to improve techniques, products, services, and the information provided to the American public"--Preface.
