Guam - Guam Homeland Security Office of Civil Defense along with the National Weather Service are monitoring a tropical depression that is likely to become a tropical storm in the next several hours.

During a heavy weather briefing held late this afternoon Civil Defense and NWS announced that Tropical Depression 08W is located about 315 miles south-southeast of Guam and is moving west northwest at 12 miles per hour. It is expected to pass southwest of Guam Friday night.  On Friday and Saturday island residents should anticipate winds to kick up to 20-30 miles per hour with gusts of up to 40 miles per hour in showers.  If you live in low lying or flood-prone areas be prepared for the possibility of flooding.  We should stress there are no watches or warnings in effect for Guam.
