El Salvador’s Environment and Natural Resources Ministry has installed two oceanographic stations in the Pacific to monitor waves and currents, allowing the country to be better prepared for potential disasters, officials said.
The government “has installed two wave and current measurement systems. The information provided by this equipment will allow us to reduce the loss of human life and damage to dwellings and businesses along the coast,” Environment and Natural Resources Ministry oceanographer Francisco Gavidia said.

“They are going to allow us to improve forecasts ... of threats from extreme waves, unusual waves, that flood and damage infrastructure along the coast,” Gavidia told Radio Nacional.
