Radar will be deployed next months, State Secretary of the Department U Win Khant said at a news briefing in Nay Pyi Taw on April 10 about the one-year achievement of the new state.
In October 2015, the first radar was set up in the Minbyin community in Kyaukphyu, Rakhine, and the second radar was set up at Kaba Aye in Yangon in October last year. "Thanks to the radar, we were able to follow windstorms every three hours," he said. Burma is the second hardest-climate country in ten.
Radar was critical in predicting windstorms and reducing the effects of catastrophes. State Secretary U Soe Aung said that in this year' s EU spending, in additon to the K 20 billion already allocated to the Civil Protection Funds, a spare funds of K 6.5 billion was provided for.
Mandalay Weather Radar Base Completes Pile Work
According to an officer of the Hydrology and Meteorology Division (Obermyanmar), the work on the building of a radar base near TadaU airport in Mandalay has been concluded. It will be constructed with the support of the Japan International Cooperation Agency-JICA from December last year and is scheduled for mid-2017, said U Kyaw Lwin Oo, Division Manager.
The first of the three weather radar units to be built in Myanmar was opened in Kyaukpyu last October, while the two plants in Mandalay and Yangon are currently underway. With three Myanmar radar sites completed, the weather forecasting will be more precise than before as the three sites will be able to share information, the CEO added.
