 DPW and GWA are currently responding to reports of flooding in the southern areas.

 Residents can anticipate more rain and thunderstorms until 6:00 p.m. tonight. Heavy thunderstorms will bring an additional two (2) to four (4) inches of rain to most of Central Guam.

 Residents can expect ground saturation, ponding of water and localized flooding with more rainfall. In addition, residents should exercise extreme caution while driving, as roads are slippery and may create unsafe driving conditions.
