Get weather updates through RakanMET

Get weather updates through RakanMET

Whichever part of Malaysia you are in, the RakanMET app allows you to share information and updates on the weather.

RakanMET aims to provide fast and accurate information to the public to ensure that they are better prepared to face extreme weather conditions.

Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Wilfred Madius Tangau said the app was developed by his ministry (Mosti) through the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia).

“Users can report weather-related incidents in their areas by uploading information onto the app.

“This is done to prevent irresponsible parties from uploading fake information on the app,” he said.

RakanMET is the second app to be developed by Mosti after myCuaca, which was launched in 2015 to provide the public with the latest weather information.

RakanMET was officially launched at the Sabah Weather and Earthquake Operations Centre on Friday, in conjunction with World Meteorological Day.

MetMalaysia director-general Alui Bahari was also present at the event to sign a memorandum of understanding with Universiti Putra Malaysia to mark their collaboration in the field of meteorological science.
