Additional Shelters Open

Posted: Sep 10, 2018 9:46 AM +10:00 Updated:

Storm shelters are filling up fast. The need for people to seek shelter to ride out Typhoon Mangkhut is so great that additional shelters have been opened. Okkodo High School and Upi Elementary are now open to take additional people. Okkodo High School has the capacity to hold 700 people. Upi Elementary can hold up to 300 people.

 According to Guam Homeland Security/ Office of Civil Defense to meet the needs of the community, the Guam Department of Education, working through the Emergency Operations Center, began coordinating with the Department of Public Works (DPW) and Mayors Council of Guam.

The shelter at Juan M. Guerrero Elementary School (JMGES) will close by 9 a.m. and shelter operations will move from JMGES to OHS. Individuals seeking shelter SHOULD NOT report to JMGES, and should instead report directly to shelters or work with village mayors if they need transportation.
