JIC Release No. 4

July 3, 2015 (12 p.m. ChST)



Chan-Hom downgraded to Tropical Storm



As advised by the National Weather Service, Chan-Hom has weakened to a Tropical Storm southeast of Guam.



Guam remains in COR 3 as of now. This is an example of how the weather can change in intensity and there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding this system. We can anticipate this system has the possibility to strengthen back into a typhoon. Residents should not underestimate this system and remain vigilant.



Safety is paramount. It is strongly advised that the community prepare for the storm.



What to do:

1.    Put up your shutters.

2.    Clear debris and secure canopies, benches, chairs and outdoor furniture.

3.    Make sure you replenish your emergency preparedness kit; store it in an easily-accessible location

4.    Keep a battery-operated radio and batteries, or a hand-powered radio on hand. The radio could be the only way you’ll be able to get information on the storm if the power goes off.

5.   When you’re done securing your homes and you know someone elderly, living with a disability, or who will otherwise need help, please see how you can help them. If you know a neighbor who has no way of getting information about the storm, please share updated information.

6. Stock up on water now.
