We have tons to update!!!!
It has been busy here...
I only have time to inform you of the latest news...
...TROPICAL STORM CONTINUES INTENSIFYING AND MOVING TOWARD
THE MARIANAS... (that is us... Guam is the southern most Mariana Island)
We have the Typhoon Kong-Rey heading our direction... it has shifted north as of last night and looks like it is going to pass just over us and hit Saipan. The Pacific Daily news says, "it continues to intensify as it moves towards Saipan, Rota and Guam." Currently the maximum sustained winds are 75 mph and are expected to reach 40 mph here on Guam. The typhoon may reach sustained winds of 95 to 110 mph within the next 24 hours.
Heath and I are fine... he has to stand duty at the hospital until the storm passes, he left last night at 2:30am. We secured the house last night before he left with the typhoon shutters and I have been working all day preparing the house. I will be staying with friends up the street. We may be out of power and water after the storm for quite a while. I will post more when I can.
