(Guam Homeland Security / Office of Civil Defense) — The National Weather Service says Tropical Depression Atsani (23W) continues to move farther west.

As of 5 p.m. Friday, the system was located near latitude 11.7 degrees north and longitude 142.5 degrees east, about 195 miles southwest of Guam, moving west-northwest at 17 mph.

NWS has canceled the tropical storm watch at 5 p.m. Friday. While the system is no longer a direct threat to Guam or the Northern Marianas at this time, hazardous seas remain.

A small craft advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. Saturday for the coastal waters of Guam, Rota, Tinian, and Saipan. Southeast winds of 15 to 25 kt with gusts of 30 to 35 kt and seas of 7 to 9 feet are expected. Inexperienced mariners, especially those operating smaller vessels, should avoid navigating in hazardous conditions.

The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense advise the community to practice extreme caution while traveling in rainy conditions, driving below the speed limit and allowing enough braking distance between vehicles.
