Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo, in coordination with weather and military officials, declared Guam to be in Condition of Readiness 1, in preparation for Typhoon Vongfong. All Guamanians are advised to stay indoors and off the streets. This is the time to remain at home and to not drive due to the high winds and heavy rains.

This means Guam could experience damaging winds within 12 hours.

Vongfong's closest point of approach is now expected to be Monday morning sometime between 2am and 4am. Increased winds and heavy rain could begin around midnight.

Access to Naval Base Guam, Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Hospital Guam is limited to authorized personnel and emergency purposes only.

All Government of Guam agencies are now closed with the exception of emergency responders. Our men and women with the Fire Department and Police Department are standing by to make sure all Guamanians and visitors are safe.

For more information contact the Joint Information Center at 475-9600/478-0208/9/10.
