Guam - GovGuam will be open for business tomorrow. That's the latest out of the Joint Information Center operating out of the Guam Homeland Security Office of Civil Defense in Agana Heights.

According to JIC coordinator Troy Torres, Governor Eddie Calvo in conjunction with the JRMC (the military) are preparing to return the island back to Condition of Readiness 4 at 8pm.

"What we've been doing here at the emergency operations center and the joint information center is following the governor's directive to transition all of our planning and resources into recovery mode and we are," he said.

Recovery efforts include ensuring that all residents who sought shelter are able to return to a safe home, that all power and utilities are up and running, and that GovGuam resume operations.

Overall, Torres commends residents for taking the extra precautions to stay safe throughout the tropical storm conditions.
