Malaysia: Penang mulls introducing own early warning disaster system

Source(s):  Malay Mail Online

GEORGE TOWN — The Penang government plans to introduce its own early warning system for weather-related disasters instead of relying on the Malaysia Meteorological Department.

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the reason is because the state could not rely fully on the Meteorological Department to alert the state of any impending storms or floods.

“We have asked the Penang Green Council (PGC) to conduct a study to have our own early warning system that we can trust,” the Air Putih assemblyman said in his winding-up speech at the state legislative assembly here today.
