SPECIAL REPORT: Tsunami Warning remains in effect for Guam

An earlier warning released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association said that tsunami waves could hit the island of Guam by 7:09 pm. Although the hour has passed, the coastal waters will be continously monitored until later in the evening.

The Department of Homeland Security and Civil Defense said that the warning will last until 11 pm ChST. At around 6 pm, Guam time, Homeland Security also noted a slight increase in water levels between Guam and Japan.

The warning prompted closures of public beaches and nearby routes. Since it has taken effect, certain areas around Route 1, 2, 14 and Camp Watkins road has been closed to traffic.
