Malaysian Meteorological Department seeks clarification from UV Awareness. Mystery of Extreme UV Radiation bombarding Ipoh deepens
A day after disclosing indications of extreme levels of UV (Ultraviolet) radiation bombarding the City of Ipoh, the team of Ipoh Happenings sent an inquiry to our Malaysian Meteorological Department (Jabatan Meteorologi) to seek their expert comments and views on the disturbing matter.
We finally received their reply the next day, on February 7th 2013;
Thank you for your email.
Referring to the above matter, we would like to inform you that we are in the process of getting clarification from UV Awareness on their methodology of issuing the UV forecast for our region. We will get back to you again on this matter.

Ipoh Happenings seeking clarifications from UV Awareness too!
Coincidentally, we at Ipoh Happenings are also waiting for some clarifications from UV Awareness but to date, we have not heard anything. Our email to UV Awareness has yet to be replied and we are hoping that UV Awareness would be able to send their responses to our questions this week.
In the meantime, we could only wonder about the accuracies of the data provided by UV Awareness and TEMIS (Tropospheric Emission Monitoring Internet Service). If their reports are accurate and according to the standards of WHO's (World Health Organization) Global Solar UV Index, it is high time that we pay more serious attention to our regional and national environmental issues.
