TYPHOON MANGKHUT UPDATE: Guam in COR 1

Residents urged to Stay Indoors

Governor Eddie Baza Calvo places Guam in Condition of Readiness (COR) 1. COR1 means destructive winds are possible within the next 12 hours.

As of 1 a.m., Typhoon Mangkhut was located 15.0 degrees north latitude and 149.9 degrees east longitude. It is currently 360 miles east-northeast of Guam and 280 miles east of Saipan moving toward the west.

Mangkhut has a current intensity of 85 mph sustained winds. On its current track, it is forecasted to make its closest point of approach (CPA) to Guam around 8 p.m. on Monday.

Expected Winds

Although the weather seems clear, we anticipate the winds picking up through Monday. Stay vigilant. 
· Damaging winds of 39 mph or more are expected as early as 1 p.m. Monday
· Destructive winds of 58 mph or more are expected by early as 6 p.m. Monday
· Closest Point of Approach is expected around 8 p.m. Monday

Damaging winds will last from early Monday afternoon through early Tuesday morning.

As a reminder, these are projections and the storm may slow down, speed up, move farther south or even strengthen.

 

Hazardous weather will remain even after the storm's closest point of approach has passed. Please remain sheltered in place until the all clear is given.

 

Heavy wind and rain increases the chance of hydroplaning. During COR1, the community is advised to stay indoors and off the roadways unless it is an emergency, or seeking shelter.
