Authorities in central Thua Thien - Hue Province are set to improve their ability to forecast storms thanks to a new wind gauge funded by the Development Workshop France, said an official of the provincial committee for storm and flood control.

The wind gauge, worth US$3,600, can measure wind speeds of up to 100m/s and is expected to improve the locality's storm forecasting capacity, making it more pro-active in storm and flood control as well as relief and rescue activities. PV
