GFD urges residents in low-lying areas to relocate to village shelter

Guam Fire Department

The Guam Fire Department advises that patients that require constant supplemental oxygen at home are urged to ensure they have filled, backup cylinders to last the duration of the typhoon, according to the Joint Information Center. Those with powered units should also have an alternative source that does not require electricity in case of power outages.

Residents in low-lying areas and areas prone to flooding are encouraged to relocate to a village shelter or higher ground before the heavy rainfall expected due to Typhoon Mawar.

Residents are urged to keep out of the ocean, inland waters, and hiking trails due to expected flash flooding and treacherous conditions.
