The Emergency Management Office is reminding the public that the small craft advisory it issued Friday remains in effect until 6pm today, Monday.
According to an EMO notice yesterday, a weak shear line will bring fresh winds with strong to near gale force gusts to Marianas waters through Monday.
“East winds of 20 knots with frequent gusts to 25 knots and occasional gusts to 30 knots will combine with seas of 9 to 10 feet to produce conditions hazardous to operators of small craft,” it adds.
EMO is advising the public and mariners, especially those operating smaller vessels, to avoid boating in these conditions.
“If travel by boat is necessary, exercise caution, especially near reef lines and when entering or leaving harbors and inlets,” the notice adds. (EMO)
