Cash-strapped countries seeking a simple and economic storm tracking system can look to a new lightning-detection system being tested in Guinea. Lightning-detection sensors have been installed in 12 mobile-phone towers, allowing Guinea's weather service to track storms as they develop. A Doppler radar system would cost about $10 million, but U.S.-based Earth Networks deployed the system in Guinea for about $1 million.
