UK Met Office Doing Worldwide Natural Disaster Warning Systems

The UK Met Office is working with the US Government (not the National Weather Service/NOAA), NASA, and Google to increase natural disaster warning systems across the globe.  Forecasts will be on the seasonal/climate area in Africa and Asia.  The goal is to improve public safety and encourage proper farming returns for the local populations.  One of the areas for improvement is to train and equip in-country weather agencies to be able to reach out to the local populations.
