Storm Update

According to the 6 AM update from the Pacific Daily News: "The closest point approach to Guam is forecasted at 9 p.m. today at about 202 miles north of Guam, according to Joint Typhoon Warning Center.Guam remains in Condition of Readiness 2, which means damaging winds of 39 to 57 mph are expected within 24 hours." From the Navy's forecasted track at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center it looks like the storm continues to move further North, but the center of it, with its 143-172 mph winds will be less than 100 miles away from Saipan . I am teaching my class this morning (We are making up our discussion of Paul's Corinthian letters that we missed from the last storm and then looking a the Prison Epistles), but this looks like a very dangerous storm and we are keeping a close eye on it and will be ready if the track changes. The little green outlined island on the left, middle side of the picture is Guam - Saipan is above Guam and slightly to the right already under the cloud band.
