Wind and rain pick up as storm approaches

Posted: Updated:

Guam - It is dangerously windy and rainy right now. Tropical Storm Halong is making its way toward our area, scheduled to pass through the Rota Channel around 1pm. As well winds and rains will be especially dangerous after Halong makes it closest point of approach. These stronger winds and rains may last hours after the closest point of approach. We'll let you know when it's okay to leave your house.  On top of the dangerous winds and rains, the roads are extremely dangerous. You'll either hydroplane on the pools of water flooding most every roadway, or you'll hit branches and trees blocking the streets. Several roads are impassable. The Department of Public Works crews have been fixing these problems as they're reported, but every road made possible is followed by the report of another impassable road. Stay off the roads, please.
