Protecting Lives & Livelihoods in Australia
- Mar 18, 2015
Weatherzone, Australia’s leading commercial weather information provider, today announces an agreement with Earth Networks, the operator of the world’s largest and most advanced total lightning detection network. With the agreement, companies in Australia gain improved access to the best lightning detection and severe weather nowcasting services available globally.
Weatherzone Managing Director, Charles Solomon, said lightning was the number-one cause of storm-related deaths in Australia and cost businesses millions of dollars in asset damage or operational shut-down costs. Accurate tracking of lightning activity is a key concern for many Australian businesses in industries that include electric utilities, mining, aviation, public safety and fire protection services.
