With new meteorological stations Corpoguajira strengthens the Early Warning System

The equipment will be essential for monitoring the hurricane season 2022, which starts this June 1. According to forecasts this year the cyclone activity will be above normal, with the formation of 21 storms in the atlantic ocean, of which of 6 a 10 they will be hurricanes.

With the acquisition and repowering of eleven new weather stations, the Regional Autonomous Corporation of La Guajira strengthens the Department's Early Warning System (SAT), with the purpose of optimizing the processes of access to key information for making decisions in a timely manner that allow knowing and mitigating the possible threats and the risk of disasters in the territory and in the population..

This is how Samuel Lanao Robles explained it, Director Corpoguajira, entity that coordinates the SAT, “this management carried out the previous year before the Environmental Compensation Fund and the Association of Biologists of the Universidad del Atlántico, allowed us to have these new teams to access climatological or historical information for territorial planning exercises and generate relevant communications through forecasts, special bulletins and notifications of climatic behavior in the peninsula”.

Additionally, it indicated that the stations, installed in Uribia, Maicao, India, Hatonuevo, Fonseca, San Juan del Cesar, The Mill and La Jagua del Pilar, They will be fundamental for the monitoring that will be carried out within the framework of the hurricane season, which will take place from June 1 to 30 November.

In this sense, Yovanny Delgado Moreno, Coordinator of Territorial Environmental Planning of Corpoguajira, explained that the climate prediction center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA, in English) shared this week its official forecast for the hurricane season 2022, in which it anticipates the formation of up to 21 storms in the atlantic ocean, of which of 6 a 10 they will be hurricanes, with which it is expected that this year the cyclone activity will be above normal.

“As a preventive measure against these phenomena, we call for the contingency plans of the Councils to be reviewed and activated (Departmental and Municipal) Risk Management, since due to the vulnerability of our Department to these adverse weather conditions, the formation of tropical waves or the cyclones themselves may occur, gales or mini tornadoes”, added the official.

The environmental authority also recommends that the community in general be attentive and stay informed about the communications and reports issued by the SAT in this regard.. Equally, develop actions now to properly secure the roofs of the houses and check the trees that represent a threat due to their weak condition or that may fall on the electricity networks or homes. Similarly, suggests to operators of shallow draft vessels, tourists and fishermen, closely monitor the evolution of weather and sea conditions and heed the recommendations given.
