A METEOROLOGICAL radar station is being installed in the compound of the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology in Yangon. The station is slated for completion this July, according to an official from the department.
The radar station in Mayangon Township is expected to be fully established in the middle of this year, said department director U Kyaw Lwin Oo, adding that more accurate and detailed weather information will be accessible upon completion of the station.
The construction of the 18-storey radar station began in September 2014.
The construction of another radar station in Chanmyathazi Township, Mandalay, is also slated for completion in 2017.
Moreover, a radar station in Kyaukpru Township, Rakhine State, was completed in August 2015. The establishment of the three radar stations in Myanmar, which are worth an estimated amount of US$38.4 million, is being financed by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
In addition to radar stations, automatic weather survey machines worth an estimated amount of $2.3 million are set to be installed at 30 weather stations, said the department.
