Earth Networks to predict early warning on Lightning in Odisha

ONI Bureau: The Odisha State Disaster Management Authority (OSDMA) on Wednesday signed an MoU with US-based Earth Networks lightning analysing system for prior weather warning like lightning and thunderstorm alerts.

Through the system namely ‘Total Lightning Based Early Warning System’, lightning strike can be predicted about 45 minutes in advance.

This will facilitate dissemination of early warning through mass massaging and mobile-based application to the people of such localities enabling them to take suitable precautionary measures to save their lives.
