Guam — and the rest of the Mariana Islands — have been cleared of a tsunami threat, according to Jenna Blas of the Guam Office of Homeland Security and Civil Defense

Patrick Chen of the National Weather Service said that Guam will likely experience choppy water and strong currents.

The National Weather Service issued a bulletin that says minor sea level fluctuations may occur in some areas beginning around 2:24 this afternoon and may continue for up to several hours.

Because of this, Chen advised residents to stay out of the water until further notice.

Jenna Blas said that the Office of Homeland Security and Civil Defense will update the public if there are any changes.
