    I honestly don't understand what the Met is doing here.We would have been better off had it been completely overhauled. Lack of state of art equipments, lack of skilled work force and lack of budgetary allocations are the direct causes of these tragic events. Will the authority ever listen to these hard working people's grievances. I very much doubt. All are after spinning offs! This is why it is called "Wonder of Asia"

    Murali Saturday, 08 June 2013 09:04 AM

    It seems they are dissappointed after the name they introduced for the last storm was not recognized by some corners.

    tarzan Saturday, 08 June 2013 05:21 AM

    why couldn't they issue this warning yesterday. Everyone knows today's weather condition and no need to re confirm the same via DM Android App

    Merv Saturday, 08 June 2013 06:31 AM
