Posted: Updated:

Guam - The National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement for Guam as drought conditions brought on by El Nino will continue through July. The NWS reports the fire danger on Guam and on the islands of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands will become severe during the next few weeks.

Gusty winds at times during the afternoon hours could require issuance of red flag warnings for Guam, which indicate an extreme potential for fires to spread rapidly.  River flows on Guam will continue to diminish. Reduced flow of the

Ugum River and reduced water levels at Fena Reservoir might restrict available water resources for Southern Guam. The Ugum River flow has fallen to near 5 million gallons per day, which is near the threshold where the Guam Waterworks Authority may need to reduce water production.
