China has established an emergency response mechanism for disaster prevention and mitigation to serve countries along the Belt and Road region, said the China Meteorological Administration (CMA). Under the mechanism, those countries can submit applications to the World Meteorological Organization for starting the mechanism once they encounter typhoon, rainstorm, sandstorm or other extreme weather. Then, CMA would operate on-duty Fengyun satellites for frequent regional observation over the disaster areas every five to six minutes.
