Guam - According to the latest advisory from the National Weather Service, Tropical Storm Vongfong is still tracking toward the Marianas. It is also gaining strength as winds have picked up to 65 miles per hour. Guam, Rota, Tinian and Saipan are currently under a Typhoon Watch. This means that typhoon conditions are possible within the next 48 hours somewhere in the specified areas. It also means that island residents should review their preparedness plan and be ready to implement it should a warning be issued for the area. Tropical Storm Vongfong is located about 760 miles E-SE of Guam. It is moving W-NW at 15 miles per hour. This would bring the storm to the southern Mariana islands by Monday morning. It could be a typhoon later this afternoon.
