PRESS RELEASES - Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense is 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.

Polaris Points, Chalan Pago Bay, and Pulantat road remain impassable due to flooding associated with heavy rain. NWS has issued an urban and small stream flood advisory for Guam until 9:15 a.m., today. The advisory means that river and stream flows are elevated or the ponding of water in urban areas is occurring or is imminent.

As rainfall continues, residents can expect ground saturation, ponding of water and localized flooding. Residents should avoid reefs and beaches as rip currents will be life threatening.  Additionally, residents should exercise extreme caution while driving, as roads are slippery and may create unsafe driving conditions.
