Early warning system of South Africa is effective

Early warning system  of South Africa is well coordinated. We have got different structures like the disaster management centers, which is operated in national, provincial and local levels. If the severe weather like tropical cyclones, floods, thunderstorms, tornados is coming, we will use early warning system to disseminate the information to the disaster management structures and implementing agencies. Then the information will also be disseminated to the public. In terms of triggering our early warning system, it's quite active. The accuracy of forecasting is over 80%.
