GUWAHATI, India (Reuters) - A senior Indian meteorologist called on Friday for modern forecasting equipment in the northeast after a devastating cyclone killed 38 people and left more than 3,000 homeless in the region.

D. Sinha, director of the Regional Meteorological Centre in Assam, told Reuters the weather office failed to detect the thunderstorm in Dhubri district because of a lack of weather watchtowers.

"The region needs more observatories with sophisticated equipment to receive images from satellites automatically round the clock," said Sinha.
