Weather Monitoring Centre opened in Kilinochchi
Tamil Eelam Weather Monitoring Centre has been unveiled in the Knowledge Centre in Kilinochchi.
The Centre was declared open by the Political Head of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, Mr.S.P.Tamilselvan to mark the 51st birthday of the Tamil National Leader, Hons.V.Pirapakaran.
It is hoped that the weather centre will help the Tamil people better prepare to face natural disasters such as Tsunami and flooding.
The impact of the Boxing Day Tsunami could have been greatly reduced if the government of Sri Lanka had acted promptly to warnings relayed by international weather monitoring agencies.
