Met Dept begins cloud seeding in Sarawak

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 12 ― The Malaysian Meteorological Department has begun cloud seeding operations in west Sarawak today to reduce the haze there.

“METMalaysia and RMAF left at noon from Labuan, Sabah for west Sarawak on an RMAF C130 aircraft to begin the operations,” he told Bernama when contacted today. “The operations does not mean we are making rain, but we speed up the rain. For it to be successful, the atmosphere must not be stable, if it is stable, there will be no cloud formation and the operations cannot be conducted.

Jailan said the haze is expected to end early next month when the monsoons change and the south west monsoon ends.
