Guam - As of 8 o’clock Tuesday evening the island was declared in Condition of Readiness 2.


This means that you should start taking necessary safety precautions to prepare for the impending storm. Guam is currently under a Typhoon Watch which means destructive winds of 75 miles per hour are possible within the next 24 - 48 hours. Tropical Storm Halong is located 205 miles East of Guam. Maximum sustained winds are now up to 60 miles per hour. It is moving slowly  toward the NW at six miles per hour. It is expected to turn back towards the West-NW Wednesday morning with a slight increase in forward speed. Its closest point of approach is around 10pm Wednesday. According GHS/OCD Spokesperson Dee Cruz storm shelters will open at 5:00am tomorrow. We will pass along the locations once they are made available.
