More showers predicted in coming weeks

by Krystal Paco

Guam - Although the months of January through June typically mark dry season, forecasters predict more showers in the coming weeks.

As a result, Guam Homeland Security Office of Civil Defense advises motorists to take caution on the roads...

Homeland Security spokesperson Alyssa Benito provides some tips for the wet conditions, saying, "Driving slow. Below the speed limit. Leaving the house an hour before you typically do to avoid that rush if there is a flooded roadway, take the alternate route, especially if you're not driving an SUV."

If you do see a flooded roadway, fallen debris, or fallen power lines, Benito asks you call your village mayor or Homeland Security at 472-9600 to report it.

Benito also asks that residents take surf advisories and small craft advisories seriously as conditions are life-threatening.
