All Guamanians are advised to stay indoors and off the streets. This is the time to remain at home and to not drive due to the high winds and heavy rains.

 

Governor Eddie Calvo, in coordination with Brig. Gen. Andrew Toth, the Deputy Commander of Joint Region Marianas, has declared Guam in Condition of Readiness 1, which means damaging winds within 12 hours.

 

The Governor is proud of all Guamanians who have done their part to ensure that our island and families are ready for the storm. Typhoon Vongfong’s closest point of approach is expected to be early tomorrow morning between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. You may start experiencing increased winds and heavy rain around midnight.

 

Access to Naval Base Guam, Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Hospital Guam is limited to authorized personnel and emergency purposes only.

 

All Government of Guam agencies are now closed with the exception of emergency responders. Our men and women with the Fire Department and Police Department are standing by to make sure all Guamanians and visitors are safe.
