Guam - Residents throughout Guam began putting up their storm shutters and preparing for Typhoon Vongfong's closest point of approach. Likewise Governor Eddie Calvo began touring the island to check on residents on how they're preparing, he also toured the storm shelter at Machanaonao Elementary and flooding along Marine Corps Drive near Polaris. With the storm likely to pass early Monday morning Governor Calvo plans to place the island in Condition of Readiness 1 shortly.    

Calvo told KUAM News, "I fully anticipate early evening we're looking at 7pm unless there's some major deviation, but at this point we're looking at 7pm."

When COR1 one is declared it means that means that residents are asked to stay indoors and off of roadways, except in cases of emergencies.  All families at shelters are advised to remain at shelters until the all-clear is given.
