For many years, CMA has made every effort in terms of disaster prevention work. For different stages of meteorological disasters, CMA provides phased forecasting and early warning service products accordingly, and fully mobilizes departmental emergency coordination and social forces in this process, so that meteorological monitoring, forecasting and early warning information can be quickly transformed into disaster prevention and mitigation action for governments at all levels and the public. This progressive meteorological service mechanism has been elucidated by unique explorations in various regions.
At 16:00 on July 23, 2023, the "1262" progressive service mechanism was launched by Fujian Provincial Meteorological Service in response to the first typhoon that made landfall in Fujian this year, Typhoon "Doksuri". With the coordinated efforts by the Service and the local government, key prevention areas were designated in advance and the district-based and sector-based hierarchical command system was established for rescue force deployment and personnel evacuation. In this case, FMS provided accurate weather forecast for the countermeasures of different sectors.
In the flood season of 2022, Shangluo, Shaanxi Province, was hit by multiple rounds of heavy rain, which damaged farmland dykes, cut off roads and destroyed infrastructure facilities. The "dual 2 mechanisms plus 5 measures" disaster prevention and mitigation mechanism of Shangluo, guided by meteorological forecasting and early warning, was employed to fight the rainstorm.
From 14:00 to 20:00 on June 30, 2020, Daliankou Village of Xiakou Town, Jiangshan City, which is the subordinate administrative area of Quzhou, Zhejiang Province, encountered heavy rainfall, causing multiple disasters such as flash flood, landslide and debris flow. Jiangshan City utilized the "grid+meteorology" mechanism to successfully transfer a total of 198 Daliankou villagers from 94 households in dangerous areas, and saved 11 trapped villagers.
