Tropical storm force winds continue, and the National Weather Service advises that although Guam is no longer expected to experience typhoon conditions from Typhoon Mawar, outer winds and rain bands of the storm are expected to persist over the island for the next few hours.

Tropical storm force winds of 35 to 40 mph, with gusts of 45 to 50 mph are anticipated as Mawar makes its way out of the Marianas. Guam remains in Condition of Readiness (COR) 1.

Remain in shelter within sturdy concrete homes with concrete roofs until COR 4 is announced.

Also, hazardous surf and seas remain. You’re warned to out of the water due to life-threatening conditions.

Typhoon Mawar’s current track puts the risk of highest surf along west and north facing reefs.

Dangerous surf persists along western and northern coastlines due to a large swell generated by Mawar.
