High Surf Advisory lasting through Tuesday afternoon

Residents are urged to avoid venturing near exposed reefs and beaches especially in areas where rip currents can be life threatening. The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory until Tuesday afternoon. You can expect hazardous surf of 9-12 feet today. Surf is expected to peak at 11-13 feet.

Department of Parks and Recreation lifeguard Robert Miranda says it's important for people to be conscious when in the waters. "We're asking all parents, if you're going to come here to the beach, be in arms reach of your kids in the water. Don't leave them unattended. Have an adult with them. We have strong currents today, so if you're not a strong swimmer, stay close to the shoreline where you can stand. Other than that, you'll be fine if you follow these basic safety rules."

Yesterday alone, the Guam Fire Department responded to two near drowning incidents. In the meantime, the NWS continues to track Tropical Storm Dujuan as it continues to move north-northeast of the island.
