As Kammuri moves away from the Marianas, Guam remains under a tropical storm warning, with gusty winds and wet weather expected to continue through the day.
The island remains in Condition of Readiness 2.
Although the storm made its closest point of approach at 2:30 a.m., damaging winds of up to 50 mph are possible throughout the day, according to the Joint Information Center. Winds should subside by the afternoon.
Seas will remain hazardous.
“Life-threatening rip currents will persist through early next week,” according to a JIC bulletin. “The community is reminded to avoid the ocean.”
A high surf warning is in effect for Guam, Rota, Tinian, and Saipan. Dangerous surf of 15 to 25 feet remains possible along north- and east-facing reefs.
Moderate to heavy rain is expected across the island throughout the day.
Schools are closed and Catholic masses have been suspended.
Local government offices, the University of Guam, Guam Community College and the District Court of Guam are also closed. They will reopen when the all-clear is given.
Military bases, however, remain operational. The military doesn’t enter COR 4 unless destructive winds of 54 mph are expected, as opposed to the civilian declaration, which occurs when damaging winds of 39 mph are expected.
