For the monsoon season, Dr. Tun Lwin, who is also known as Moe Moe, was named on the Mount of Contemporary Plantation.

In the spring of 2008, U Tun Lwin, Myanmar’s top weather official, noticed that a tropical cyclone was barreling toward the country from the Indian Ocean.But the generals who ruled the country were unable — critics say unwilling to take preventive action before the storm, Cyclone Nargis, which ended up killing at least 140,000 people.

It would prove to be among the deadliest storms in recorded history.I didn’t have the authority to evacuate people,” Dr. Tun Lwin said years later in an interview with the magazine Frontier Myanmar. “I didn’t have the authority to give orders. That is some other department’s work.  Unfortunately, they didn’t do anything.”

Dr. Tun Lwin, an American-educated meteorologist who was widely known as the “people’s weatherman” and who spent his last years sounding the alarm about climate change, died on Monday at a hospital in Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city. He was 71. His death, from a heart attack, was announced on Dr. Tun Lwin’s Facebook page.

He had suffered from diabetes as well as heart and kidney ailments for about 10 years, Aw Pi Kyeh, a cartoonist and friend, said. Burma, as the country was called until 1989, had been ruled for decades by generals. When Cyclone Nargis devastated the Irrawaddy River Delta, the military junta in power praised its own response.

But critics say the generals deliberately played down the cyclone’s approach and then its impact because they were focused on a forthcoming referendum on a constitution drafted by the military. Meteorologist Dr Tun Lwin passed away on November 4, and people from all over Myanmar are sad to see Dr Tun Lwin die.

He retired in 2009 after working at the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology since graduating from high school.Despite his retirement, he posted daily news about the well-known weather news on his social media page – a memorial tree planting ceremony for Dr. Tun Lwin, dubbed by the monk Tun Lwin, under the Myanmar Green Network on November 24th.
