Early Warning Systems in Action
Do early warning systems really work in India? Ours do. Earth Networks works together with various states and meteorological entities in India
to increase lightning safety with early warning systems and weather intelligence. Our Total Lightning Network is active throughout the country (In places like West Bengal, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Odisha) and powers multiple components of statewide early warning systems like lightning horns and alerting applications.
One of the most lightning-prone regions of India is the state of Odisha. In 2019, Odisha's lightning deaths declined by 31% after the office of the SRC and Odisha’s Disaster State Disaster Management Authority (OSDMA) partnered with Earth Networks. Earth Networks provides OSDMA with advanced information from their total lightning network to alert citizens and enable them to take the required precautionary measures to save lives.
