Guam - Six schools are being prepared in case shelters are needed with Typhoon Francisco out on the water. These shelters will open at 6pm:

  • Machananao Elementary School (Dededo)
  • FBLG Middle School (Yigo)
  • Astumbo Elementary School (Dededo)
  • George Washington High School (Mangilao)
  • Talofofo Elementary School (Talofofo)
  • Merizo Elementary School (Merizo)

These schools will not be open for classes tomorrow and they will be used as shelters.  Residents with transportation can drive to the schools starting at that time. Those without transportation need to contact their village mayor or Civil Defense at 475-9600.  If you will be going to a shelter, you are urged to bring enough food and water for three days and toiletries. All other public schools will be open until further notice.

If there are any additional closures, that decision will be made no later than 9 o'clock tonight.
