TYPHOON MANGKHUT UPDATE: Okkodo High School and Upi Elementary to open as additional shelters

Due to the need to house additional persons, especially in the northern area, plans are underway to open the Okkodo High School (OHS) and Upi Elementary School (UES) as emergency shelters by 9 a.m. today.

Okkodo High School has the capacity to hold 700 people. Upi Elementary can hold up to 300 people. To meet the needs of our community, the Guam Department of Education, working through the Emergency Operations Center, began coordinating with the Department of Public Works (DPW) and Mayors Council of Guam.

The shelter at Juan M. Guerrero Elementary School (JMGES) will close by 9 a.m. and shelter operations will move from JMGES to OHS. Individuals seeking shelter SHOULD NOT report to JMGES, and should instead report directly to shelters or work with village mayors if they need transportation.

Adding Okkodo High School and Upi Elementary brings the availableshelter count total to 10.

The designated storm shelters that residents should proceed to are: 
 

Primary Northern Shelters Capacity Shelter Population % Capacity
1. Okkodo High School 700 0 0%
2 Upi Elementary School 300 0 0%

Storm Shelter updates will be released as necessary throughout the day.
