Tropical Storm Watch Canceled for Guam and Rota

Posted: Updated:

Guam and Rota are in the clear from receiving tropical storm force winds as Tropical Storm Choi-Wan is moving north. According to the National Weather Service's latest update a Tropical Storm Warning and Typhoon Watch remains in effect for Tinian, Saipan and now Agrihan. Tropical Storm Choi-Wan was centered near latitude 15.7 degrees north and longitude 149.6 degrees east. This is about 360 miles east-northeast of Guam.

The system is moving west-northwest at nine miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds are 55 miles per hour. Meanwhile, according to Guam Homeland Security and the Office of Civil Defense residents should be reminded that this system may still create monsoon conditions for Guam and to anticipate heavy rain and increased winds by late Monday afternoon through Thursday morning. Those in low-lying and flood-prone areas should begin to clear debris that may clog drainage systems.

Motorists should also exercise extreme caution as these conditions may create unsafe driving conditions for the next few days.
