Guam - The Joint Region Marianas remains in Condition of Readiness 3. Roy Tsutsui spoke before government officials during this morning's weather briefing at Civil Defense. He clarified why the military had to sound the alarms and set COR 3, rather than follow GovGuam's condition of readiness.

"So we then were told if it's going to be a formation alert potential for Friday is there a chance for it to form into a depression and then possibly a storm over us or near us, and the answer was yes there was a potential because once it forms on you or near you sometimes it could stay and not move away and become stronger and low and behold you have a storm on top of you which happened on Guam before. So the military took prudent action by saying if there is a chance it will form over us and no chance to prepare and we have lots of things to protect from our planes and ships to our preparations of canopies and other things that might be flying hazards then the prudent thing to do was to go into Condition of Readiness 3," he said.

He adds the military installations will remain in COR 3 until the bad weather officially passes the territory.
