Flood monitors to be set up

The Papua New Guinea National Weather Service, in collaboration with the Conservation and Environment Protection Authority, is embarking on this exercise.

With funding support from UNDP’s Adaption Funds, the National Weather Service has already installed instruments at the Bumbu River in Lae City and upgraded several other weather monitoring gadgets at Nadzab Airport, Morobe Province.

Assistant director for Forecasting and Warning Centre at the National Weather Service, Jimmy Gomoga, says they now want to do away with all the manual instruments.
