NWS cancels Tropical Storm Watch

Posted: Updated:

by Jason Salas

With Tropical Storm 22-W having passed to the south of the island at around 10am today, the National Weather Service called off the Tropical Storm Watch that had been in place for several hours prior.  Weather-watchers had been eyeing the formation since 7pm Wednesday night, as it intensified to the southwest of Guam.

Although the Watch was in effect, Guam remained in Condition of Readiness "4" throughout the morning, with no major closures or interruptions of service.  However, heavy rains and strong winds are being reported throughout the island, and the possibility of flooding and ponding remains.

Residents are advised to remain cautious when driving due to unfavorable conditions caused by the weather.
