The Observatory launched a new version of the "Weather Information for Schools" webpage (http://www.hko.gov.hk/school/main.shtml) today (24 August). The new webpage was enhanced with a list of regional rainfall which is updated every 15 minutes. It facilitates schools, parents and students to grasp the latest rainfall situation of their concerned districts. Icons linking to radar images, real-time and forecast rainfall distribution maps were also made available to users to enable them to better appreciate the change of rainfall situation in different districts and take appropriate precautionary measures.
The new webpage also provides relevant links to the webpages of Education Bureau (EDB) to facilitate parents and students to learn the latest announcement on class arrangement issued by EDB during tropical cyclone and rainstorm situations.
