Overnight rains causing southern flooding

Posted: Updated:

PRESS RELEASES - Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense are in constant communication with the National Weather Service (NWS), the Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Mayor's Offices of several affected villages as the island continues to experience heavy rainfall and isolated flooding.
 
DPW is currently responding to reports of flooding in Merizo. The affected areas are Espinosa Avenue, Quinene Road, and the Barcinas housing.
 
While the morning rainfall may have tapered off, residents should anticipate more rain throughout the day.  Residents can expect ground saturation, ponding of water and localized flooding with more rainfall. In addition, residents should exercise extreme caution while driving, as roads are slippery and may create unsafe driving conditions.
