ALTHOUGH fallen trees scattered on Managaha, the facilities on the isle sustained only minor damage from Typhoon Yutu, according to Masato Tezuka, Tasi Tours and Transportation president and general manager of Pacific Micronesia Tours Inc.
Tasi Tours, the Managaha concessionaire, resumed business on Nov. 9 to allow off-island volunteers to enjoy the most visited tourist destination on island.
Responding to Rep. Leepan Guerrero’s safety concerns, Tezuka said Managaha is safe, adding that Tasi Tours, before reopening, got approval from the Department of Public Lands.
He said DPL also checked the situation on Managaha before the official re-opening.
Guerrero, who chairs the House tourism committee, said a certified engineer should assess the facilities on Managaha to determine whether or not the structures, especially the pier, are still sound and safe.
Tezuka said the facilities on Managaha, including the pier, were not damaged.
But those that sustained minor damage included one shower, the roof of the pavilion and main building, several chairs for customers, and the life guard tower on the beach, Tezuka added.
