The complete dataset 1978-2009 has been supplied by UHSLC. After checking these with existing data values these data have been entered onto the database. RLR remains 5.951m. Areas affected by the Typhoons in 1981 and 1986 were previously flagged. These have now been removed as the data is probably good with meteorological effects. The station remains flagged as obviously the area is prone to earthquake.
