The worst weather conditions from Typhoon Mangkhut will persist until later tonight. Conditions will slowly improve but we continue to urge the community to remain indoors until Condition of Readiness (COR) 4 is announced.
After damaging winds subside, it may still be unsafe to traverse due to any debris, flooded roadways, downed power lines, or any other damages that are harmful to life and property. Until COR 4 announcement, should remain indoors to allow for emergency personnel to make road safety and recovery assessments.
As of 7 p.m., Mangkhut was located 14.1 degrees north latitude and 145.0 degrees east longitude, about 15 miles west of Rota and 50 miles north-northeast of Guam.
A typhoon warning remains in effect for Guam, Rota, Tinian, Saipan, and adjacent coastal waters in the Mariana Islands, meaning typhoon conditions, including destructive winds of 74 mph or more, are occurring in all locations. Category 2 typhoon winds of 105 mph or more remain likely for Rota. Rota is currently located in the eastern eye wall.
