Vongfong Tracking Towards Rota-Chip Guard of NWS Explains

Guam- National Weather Service Forecaster Chip Guard says Typhoon Vongfong is not likely to hit Guam directly. He says Guam can expect a “glancing blow” from Vongfong. It is currently tracking slightly North of Rota according to tracking models from the NWS. Guard says it could pass directly over Rota or in the Rota channel that separates Guam from Rota. This means stronger winds are expected for the Northern part of Guam. Guard says the closest point of approach is between 2am or 4am. Northern part of guam could get 75 mph maximum sustained winds during this time.

  1. I was gassing up at around 7 p.m. at the Sumay Mobil gas station when a loud siren went off. It sounded like we were at war. Soon after the siren went off, the gas station went dark. An employee said that they couldn’t allow anyone inside the station until the generator was turned on. It only lasted a few seconds and then the power came back on. Soon after that, the siren stopped and there was a person announcing in a loud speaker that the island was now in COR1. It all was so eerie. That’s all it took for me to gas up and high tail it home.
