********** Team Andersen, A tropical depression (TW03) has formed and is currently located approximately 350 miles southeast of Guam. The storm is forecast to slowly move northward over the next 48 hours. Base residents can expect 30-45 kt winds with periods of thunderstorms and heavy rain totaling 7 inches into Monday (reference Andersen 5 day forcecast). We do not anticipate a change in TCCOR for Andersen at this time. Base residents are encouraged to consider removing canopies and securing loose objects outdoors (e.g. patio furniture, trash cans, trampolines) out of an abundance of caution. There is some uncertainty concerning the expected path and the intensity of the storm. Our weather and emergency management experts will remain in close coordination with our Guam and Navy counterparts as we head into the weekend to provide you updates on storm information. For additional information, please turn to the Commander Access Channel, Water Cooler, and Andersen AFB Facebook or contact the installation's Office of Emergency Management at 366-3113.
