Malaysia Deploys Cloud Seeding To Mitigate Haze Season


Torrential rain fell on Kuala Lumpur on Monday (Sept 16) after cloud seeding efforts took off in the central states of peninsula Malaysia following days of delays due to unsuitable conditions. The Meteorological Department said it was able to seed clouds over Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Melaka with the cooperation of the National Disaster Management Agency and air force. The nearly three-hour operation was "fruitful" as rain was reported over several targeted districts, although "not as encompassing as expected".
