The information below has been provided by the Guam of Homeland Security and Civil Defense http://www.ghs.guam.gov/

An emergency can occur quickly and without warning. The most important thing you can do to keep yourself and your family safe from an emergency is to prepare, stay calm, and follow instruction from emergency personnel.

The following suggestions will help you and your family develop an emergency plan, assemble a preparedness kit, and share some basic information on what to do before, during, and after any emergency. These will also provide you with important information about how to obtain emergency and ongoing disaster recovery assistance.

Before Emergency Strikes
 

An emergency can occur without warning, leaving little or no time for you and your family to plan what to do next. It is necessary for you to learn about the things you can do to be prepared before an emergency occurs. Two actions that will help you do this are to develop an Emergency Plan, and prepare an Disaster Supply Kit. The next few pages describe how this is done.

Create an Emergency Plan

Before creating your household emergency plan, learn about the types of emergencies that may affect your community, how you'll be notified of an event, and plans that may be in place to deal with these events. Learn if your community has a warning system-via television, radio, or another signal-recognize what it sounds like and what to do when you hear it. Emergencies may strike when your family members are away from home, so find out about plans at your workplace, school, or anywhere else you and your family spends time. Steps to take in creating a household emergency plan includes:

  1. Meet with household members and discuss the dangers of possible emergency events, including fire, severe weather, hazardous spills, and terrorism.
  2. Discuss how you and your family will respond to each possible emergency.
  3. Discuss what to do in case of power outages or personal injuries.
  4. Draw a floor plan of your home. Mark two escape routes from each room.
  5. Teach adults how to turn off the water, gas, and electricity at main switches. If for any reason you do turn off natural gas service to your home, call  to restore service, Do not attempt to restore gas service yourself.
  6. Post emergency contact numbers near all telephones, pre-program emergency numbers into phones with auto-dial capabilities.
  7. Teach children how and when to dial 9-1-1 to get emergency assistance.
  8. Teach children how to make long-distance telephone calls.
  9. Pick a friend or relative that all family members will call if separated (it is often easier to call out-of-state during an emergency than within the affected area.
  10. Instruct household members to turn on the radio for emergency information.
  11. Pick two meeting places:
    • A place near your home.
    • A place outside your neighborhood (or off-island) in case you cannot return home after an emergency.
  12. Take a basic First Aid and CPR Class. Contact American Red Cross for more info.
  13. Keep family records in a water and fireproof safe. Inexpensive models can be purchased at most hardware store.
     
Prepare a Disaster Supply Kit

Often during an emergency, electricity, water, heat, air conditioning, or telephone service may not work. Preparing an Disaster Supply Kit ahead of time can save precious time in the event you must evacuate or go without electricity, heat, or water for an extended period of time. You can gather water, food, first-aid supplies, clothing, bedding, tools, and other essential items to store at any time. You should consider including the following items in an Disaster Supply Kit.

  1. At least a 3-day supply of water (1 gallon per person per day). Store water in sealed, unbreakable containers. Replace every 6 months.
  2. A 3 to 5 day supply of non-perishable packaged or canned food and a non-electric can opener.
  3. A change of clothing, rain gear, and sturdy shoes.
  4. Blankets, bedding, or sleeping bags.
  5. A first aid kit and prescription medications (be sure to check the expiration dates)
  6. An extra pair of glasses or contact lenses and solution (be sure to check the expiration dates)
  7. A list of family physicians, important medical information, and the style and serial number of medical devices such as pacemakers.
  8. Special items for infants, the elderly, or family members with disabilities.
  9. A battery-powered radio, flashlight, and plenty of extra batteries.
  10. Identification, credit cards, cash, and photocopies of important family documents including home insurance information.
  11. An extra set of car and house keys.
  12. Tools such as screwdrivers, cutters, and scissors; duct tape; waterproof matches' a fire extinguisher' flares' plastic storage containers' needle and thread' pen and paper; a compass; garbage bags; and regular household bleach. 
Things to think about...

If any members of your household have disabilities or are elderly, find out what services may be available to aid in their care or evacuation in the event of an emergency.

If you have pets, you should find out whether potential shelters will allow them many will not In this case, you may with to make arrangements for pets in advance of an emergency.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Helping with neighbors in an emergency can save lives and property. Meet with your community members to plan how you could work together until help arrives. If you are a member of a neighborhood organization, such as a home association or crime watch group, introduce emergency preparedness as a new activity. Know your neighbor;s special skills and consider how you could help those with special needs, such as people with disabilities and elderly persons.

If You Have Pets

Create a survival kit for your pet. This should include:

  • Identification collar and rabies tag.
  • Carrier or cage.
  • Leash.
  • Any medications (be sure to check expiration dates).
  • Newspapers and plastic trash bags for handling waste.
  • At least a two-weeks supply of food, water, and food bowls.
  • Veterinary records (most animal shelters do not allow pets without proof of vaccination).

If you have no other choice but to leave your pet at home, place your pet in a safe area inside your home with plenty of water and food. Never leave pets chained outside. Place a note outside your home listing what pets are inside, where they are located, and phone numbers of where you can be reached.

After An Emergency Strikes

and after an emergency occurs, it is important to stay calm. Even after an event, there may still be many dangers. What seems like a safe distance or location may not be. Stay tuned to your local emergency station and follow the advice of trained professionals. Unless told to evacuate, avoid roads to allow emergency vehicles access. What you do next can save your life and the lives of others. Here are some helpful hints:

If Your Power Goes Out
  1. Remain calm, and assist family members or neighbors who may be vulnerable if exposed to extreme heat or cold.
  2. Locate a flashlight with batteries to use until power comes back on. Do not use candles this can cause a fire.
  3. Turn off sensitive electric equipment such as computers, VCRs, and televisions.
  4. Turn off major electric appliances that were on when the power went off. This will help to prevent power surges when electricity is restored.
  5. Keep your refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible to keep cold in and heat out.
  6. Do not use the stove to heat your home this can cause a fire or fatal gas leak.
  7. Use extreme caution when driving. If traffic signals are out, treat each signal as a stop sign come to a complete stop at every intersection and look before you proceed.
  8. Do not call 9-1-1 to ask about the power outage. Listen to the news radio stations for updates.

Flooding can cause contamination of water supplies. Bad water can contain microorganisms that cause diseases such as dysentery, typhoid, and hepatitis. If you think your water may be contaminated, you should purify it before using it. This includes water used for drinking, cooking, cleaning dishes, or bathing. The best way to purify water is to boil it. Boiling. Boiling is considered the safest method of purifying water. Bring water to a boil for 3-5 minutes, and then allow it to cool before drinking. Pouring water back and forth between two containers will improve the taste by putting oxygen back into the water.

Typhoon Safety Tips

  
Indoor Preparations:
  • Secure all important documents in a zip lock bag
  • Cover all beds and other items with plastic to protect from water seeping in around windows/doors
  • Consider packing matches (consider using child-proof lighters), toilet paper and other things you must keep dry in a zip lock bag
  • Closets are a good place for storing large items
  • Roll carpets up and away from doors, arrange flashlights, lanterns, candles, and lighters in places where they can be easily found
  • When, or if the power goes out unplug all appliances; this will prevent damage from power surge when power is restored.
  • Ensure all range controls are in the off position

Typhoon Evacuation Preparations:
  • Listen to/Watch the local media
  • Cooperate with local officials directing evacuation routes
  • If you do not have any transportation, make arrangements with relatives, friends, or your local village Mayor Office. Wear protective clothing and sturdy shoes
  • Gather water, food, clothing, and emergency supplies
  • Secure your house by
    • Boarding or placing shutter on all windows/doors
    • Unplug appliances
    • Turn off gas valve
    • Turn off the main water valve
  • Follow recommended evacuation routes
  • Don't take shortcuts! They may be blocked

Outside Preparations:
  • Tie down tin-covered roof extension with cables
  • Secure all loose items such as garbage can lids, empty drums,, gardening tools, and any other material that could become airborne during high winds
  • Take down all lawn umbrellas and temporary canopies
  • Secure plywood or typhoon shutters on windows and have an extra plywood/shutter on hand; wind-thrown debris and wind pressure can break windows
  • Remove and secure or waterproof window air conditioners
  • Fuel your car; service stations may be closed after the storm
  • Ensure that the main gas valve is shut off
  • Stay indoors until Condition Four is declared

     
Post Typhoon Preparations:
  • Remain in your shelter, until informed by local authorities that it is safe to leave
  • Keep tuned to local radio or television stations for advice and instructions from the local government
  • Stay away from disaster areas-sightseers should not interrupt crucial rescue and recovery work
  • Drive only when necessary and be especially careful. Streets will be filled with debris and down lines/tree
  • Avoid loose or dangling power wires and report them immediately to local officials
  • Report broken sewer or water mains
  • Prevent fires. Local water pressure may bd low, making fire fighting more difficult
  • Check refrigerated food for spoilage
  • Stay away from river banks until all potential flooding has passed.

What an exciting weather morning we had! The video below shows the thunderstorm outbreak that began right at sunrise. The forecast calls for continued unsettled weather with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms through Saturday.
Hafa Adai, Team Andersen! Our weather radar is picking up very isolated, light rainshowers at this time off the coast of Guam. Partly to mostly cloudy skies will prevail throughout the afternoon during the base picnic. Our Mother's Day forecast is also looking bright and sunny so get out enjoy this beautiful weather.
“Stratus” update. Our forecast calls for scattered rainshowers tomorrow beginning during your morning commute and lasting through the night before clearing up again mid-morning Saturday. We’re keeping an eye out for a stray thunderstorm too as we experience a surge in moisture throughout the atmosphere tomorrow.
Rainshowers incoming! We should receive a good downpour tonight and more showers tomorrow as a tropical disturbance passes south of us. Slippery roads tonight and tomorrow... drive safe! Rip currents are also beginning to trend towards high risk levels.
Your Andersen Weather Team provided Weather to Prevail during COPE NORTH 18. Check out our tactical weather station we deployed to Tinian in support of the humanitarian assistance exercise at the 2:00 minute mark in the awesome video below!
Weather to Prevail!
Well team, it looks like Tropical Depression Two is staying true to its original forecast track. Don't you like that? We do! The latest forecast keeps this cyclone well to our south, but keep in mind that a high surf advisory is in effect here until 6pm Sunday evening. Be smart out there this weekend!
A Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert has been issued for an area of circulation taking shape approximately 500 nautical miles southeast of Andersen. Take a gander at the weather satellite imagery along with the initial forecast track. At this time, we're forecasting for winds to increase over the next 24 hours to a maximum sustained speed of 20 knots with gusts up to 30 knots and isolated showers to become scattered showers as this system progresses westward through the weekend. Stay tuned for updates!
Team Andersen, it is National Weatherperson's Day! On this day we celebrate the achievements our nation has made in the field of meteorology and the people, like your very own Andersen weather team, that deliver the best weather forecasts around the clock 365 days a year. We are dedicated to keeping you safe and providing Weather to Prevail! Come over to the weather station today and get to know your local weathermen over a free cup of joe.
Hafa Adai! Micronesia is looking predominantly stable throughout the week however a midlatitude system was nice enough modify a notable high pressure over our region. Look for some additional moisture characteristics in the region capable of producing scattered clouds and intermittent light non-impactful showers throughout the day. Seas relatively benign as winds continue to dampen over the region as well.
Good morning, Team Andersen! National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory extending from now until 0600 on Saturday, January 06th. This advisory includes large north swells, producing hazardous surf and a high risk of rip currents along north facing reefs. The surf will be hazardous at 7-9ft, and may rise to 10ft at times. Avoid venturing near reef lines and exposed beaches, where rip currents will be most threatening. Remember to always bring a buddy and a flotation device!
Hafa adai, everyone! We're expecting a slight change to our lovely weather pattern over the next few days... a shear line will be drifting southward over Andersen tomorrow afternoon. Expect increased cloud cover and a slight dip in maximum temperatures through Sunday while this system slowly moves across Guam.
Oh the weather outside is... delightful!
Team Andersen (especially the children), we just gave Santa his flight weather brief... Christmas is a 'go'! We expect a few showers (rain not snow!) late tonight and early morning, but the majority of the day tomorrow will be dominated by sunshine! It looks like high pressure will continue to prevail through most of the week too. Magof Nochebuena!
Happy winter solstice, Team Andersen! Time flies when you're having fun, especially on the shortest day of the year! Your Christmas forecast is coming soon... we can't promise snow, but we may have plenty of sunshine!
Good morning, Team Andersen! Our forecasters are hard at work supporting Operation Christmas Drop. Santa, in his C-130s, has been able to exploit the beautiful weather in our region to deliver supplies to residents of many islands like Losap, Oneop, Ifalik, and Pulawatt. Andersen's forecast is also looking bright through the end of the week as we remain in a relatively calm weather pattern.
Hafa Adai! Team Andersen this weekend should prove to be warm and wet with a resurgence of the tropical convergence belt over the next 4 days. Tropical showers in the early AM hours on Saturday increasing in frequency through Sunday. Monday will cap off the effects of a developing Tropical Depression to our west as we see light rain (0.35") and cloud cover throughout the day. Winds will be a factor for remainder of the week from the SE at 15-20KTS. To our hikers this weekend stay prepared. Trails will remain wet with some more frequent tropical showers but there will also be clearing and plenty of sunshine mixed in making for tough, slippery, and humid hikes. Bring plenty of water and appropriate attire to keep yourselves protected from exposure Happy Holidays SSgt Anderson

Good afternoon, Team Andersen! There's plenty of sunshine in the forecast this weekend. Our weather satellites are showing plenty of high pressure and dry air upstream of Guam. We're keeping the typical, isolated rainshowers in the forecast but expecting plenty of sunshine to enjoy the majority of the weekend.
What's better than a full moon on Halloween? Your Andersen Weather team doing their best waxing gibbous impression. Like our faces, you'll only see about a 79% moon illumination in tonight's sky! Not too bright, and will be perfectly complemented by partly cloudy skies. Be safe, and feel free to send us your best waxing gibbous impression! Happy Halloween, Andersen!

Be Ready! Staying prepared is key. We&#39;re watching a tropical disturbance south of Guam this morning as it heads slowly west-northwest. Expect a mix of showers and thunderstorms the next few days as the disturbance and the monsoon trough passes through the region. For the full Marianas forecast and the weekend outlook, go to: https://www.weather.gov/gum/PublicForecasts
Typhoon (formerly tropical storm) Maria packed quite a punch this week as she slow rolled her way over Guam. To our brothers and sisters in Okinawa, stay safe as she is far more powerful than she looks!
An island update from our brothers and sisters at the Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense &#127468;&#127482;
How was your night? Stay safe Team Andersen! Delayed reporting is authorized for non-mission essential personnel until 1000.
Here are some helpful tips to get your family better prepared: 1. Stay up to date with the latest information. The storm track or intensity may change and advisories regarding flash flooding or high surf may be issued 2. Stay out of the waterfalls and rivers and avoid hiking, due to the potential for flash floods 3. Locate or prepare your emergency preparedness kits for your household 4. Clear loose debris around your yard and store any items that may become airborne with heavy wind 5. Gas your car and get fuel for your generators 6. Stay up to date in the event there are changes with or updates to changes in Conditions of Readiness (as of now it will remain at TCCOR 4) 7. Secure outdoor pets in a safe location either indoors or inside the garage
Conditions will continue to deteriorate as the night progresses. While we are reminded this week to always be prepared, what are your supply kit must haves? (besides the essentials)
Update:
Looks like some inclement weather is in our future. As always, hope for the best and prepare for the worst!
Be ready Team Andersen!
