Aparri Pagasa weather radar reactivated

APARRI, CAGAYAN (1 August) -- Early detection of any weather disturbance will come easy for the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) as it re-activated its weather radar field station here recently.

PAGASA Supervisor Engr. Leo Buņag said the Aparri radar will resume normal operations to augment the agency's already existing network of meteorological radar systems.

He noted that the Aparri radar was first commissioned in 1974. It is one of the vintage model acquired by PAGASA to monitor and track tropical cyclones in the Northern Luzon area until its operation was interrupted after it was damaged by typhoon Feria in 2001.

The rehabilitation of the facility including five other radar stations in the country is made possible through a P17million financial assistance given by the Department of Science and Technology.

The rehab also includes the acquisition of a new and sophisticated Doppler radar which is capable of advance performance surpassing that of the conventional radar system currently used by the agency.

The re-launching of the Aparri radar was followed by a seminar/workshop on disaster preparedness for the media, barangay officials and fisherfolks.

The occasion was graced by DOST Sec. Estrella Alabastro, Cagayan Governor Edgar Lara, Aparri Mayor Ismael Tumaru, representatives from the Japan Radio Company and Tomen Manufacturing Company and other DOST officials. (PIA-Cagayan) [top]
