    What a forcast. No winds last night and today. How much public funds are spent on the Met Department?

    Always way behind and after the damage is done issues warnings.

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

    can you name one government department,which is really professional and hard working?

    Mal Saturday, 08 June 2013 08:50 AM

    Well this would have been usefull last night before all the fishermen went out! Anyone can issue a warning 12 hours after the storm hit!

    siri Saturday, 08 June 2013 08:34 AM

    How effective they are in providing after effects??? What about weather forecasts??

    Fassey Saturday, 08 June 2013 07:58 AM

    They are so efficient!

    FitforPurpose Saturday, 08 June 2013 07:54 AM

    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"

    Namal Baby Saturday, 08 June 2013 06:41 AM

    Freedom Saturday, 08 June 2013 06:36 AM

    After all happened now only the message passed

    Merv Saturday, 08 June 2013 06:31 AM

    I think I could predict weather better than the Met. Dept.

    SF Saturday, 08 June 2013 12:00 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

    ANTON Saturday, 08 June 2013 05:22 AM

    ARE THEIR TESTING EQUIPMENTS WORKING PROPERLY, I AM NOT SURE WHETHER THEIR PREDICTION ARE ON THE MONEY.

    tarzan Saturday, 08 June 2013 05:21 AM
