SunStar reported: 
The WPFI turned over the AWS and trained the municipal disaster risk reduction and management officers (MDRRMO), public information officers, administrators and mayors on the installation of the AWS and how to use the Weather Philippines website.
By bringing together the Aboitiz Group's resources and network, and MeteoGroup's technical expertise, WPFI is poised to be the country's premiere private weather information/content provider. The foundation aims to deploy 1,000 AWS nationwide.

The LGUs that received the AWS are Alcoy, Daanbantayan, Dumanjug, San Francisco, Madridejos, Malabuyoc, Santander, San Remegio, Tuburan and Bogo City.

In a press statement, WPFI said it wants to “complement the government’s efforts in reducing weather-related disaster risks in the country, enabling timely response to variable weather conditions to avoid loss of life and property.”
