Travel Alerts are issued to disseminate information about short-term conditions, either transnational or within a particular country, that pose significant risks to the security of U.S. citizens. Travel Warnings are issued when long-term, protracted conditions that make a country dangerous or unstable lead the State Department to recommend that Americans avoid or consider the risk of travel to that country.
Travel Alert: 2015 Hurricane and Typhoon Season (May to December 2015)

U.S. citizens living in or traveling to the region should monitor local weather reports and take other appropriate action as needed.
The American Embassy encourages all U.S. citizens residing in the Marshall Islands to register with the Embassy's Consular Section. The State Department has a secure online registration website which will allow you, as an American citizen, to record residence information that the State Department can use to communicate with you and assist you in case of an emergency. You are invited to register yourself and your family by accessing the site directly at the State Department Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.
You may also register at the Embassy's consular section if you do not have access to the internet. Registration is not required, but is strongly recommended.
Registration provides the Embassy with an effective means of documenting your citizenship and locating you in case of an emergency. Registration has proven useful in locating a relative following the death in the U.S. of a family member, in verifying U.S. citizenship after the loss or theft of a passport, and similar circumstances.
