Govt offices close early today


As of 11am today, Oct. 23, Typhoon Condition 2 has been declared on Saipan and Tinian, while Tropical Storm Condition 2 was hoisted over Rota, Alamagan, Pagan, and Agrihan due to the anticipated threat of Tropical Storm Yutu.


In a memorandum today, Gov. Ralph DLG Torres also advised that all government offices will be shut down today effective at 11:30am today, Oct. 23, and non-critical government employees will be released at that time.
