High Risk of Rip Currents for the Marianas

High Risk of Rip Currents for the Marianas

The National Weather Service (NWS) - Guam Weather Forecast Office advised trade-wind swell will maintain a high risk of rip currents for Guam, Rota, Tinian, and Saipan through early Monday morning, especially on east facing reefs.

If caught in a rip current, yell for help. Remain calm and stay afloat while waiting for help. If swimming out of a rip current, swim parallel to shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Rip currents will be life threatening.

The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD) remind residents and visitors to avoid east facing reefs and beaches until hazardous conditions subside.
