Rain-making efforts will continue until end of month in Khon Kaen

The Northeastern Royal Rainmaking Operation Centre is extending the royal rainmaking operation period, as part of air pollution reduction efforts, until the end of February.

The Director of the Northeastern Royal Rainmaking Operation Centre, Wassana Wongrat, says the Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation set up a rapid deployment unit to conduct royal rainmaking operations to improve the air quality in Khon Kaen province last week.

The air quality in and around Khon Kaen and much of the north-east region has been poor for the past month, mostly due to the burn-offs of plantations in the region.

The centre has been closely monitoring the air quality in the north-eastern province and found that the conditions would be suitable for rainmaking operations from February 24-26.

The DRRAA Director-General, Surasee Kitimonthon, has ordered the rain-making unit in Khon Kaen to extend the royal rainmaking operations period up to the end of the month.
