DMH warns of strong winds, thunderstorms nationwide in April—May

The Department of Meteorology and Hydrology has issued a warning about the likelihood of strong winds and thunderstorms across all regions of Myanmar during April and May.
According to the department, daytime temperatures will gradually increase, leading to the formation of thermal clouds. Additionally, cumulonimbus clouds may develop in the afternoons and evenings.
Along the paths where cumulonimbus clouds move, there is a possibility of adverse weather conditions such as strong winds, lightning, hail, and scattered thunderstorms. The statement further indicates that wind speeds on land and sea could reach 40 to 50 miles per hour during these strong wind events.
In Monyo township of the Bago Region, five houses in Kyunthida village and five houses in Myayza village collapsed due to strong winds around 10:15 am on 13 April. Search and rescue teams from fire stations in the Sinmanaing and Yaykin areas responded to the incident to provide necessary assistance, as reported by the Myanmar Fire Services Department.
Given these conditions, the DMH has advised the public, as well as domestic flights and waterways, to remain vigilant and heed weather forecasts closely. — TWA/MKKS
