Abstract— Strong wind allows uproot the trees and causes human victims to be injured or dead. Unfortunately, the strong wind comes suddenly to the trees on the street and many people and traffic are around there. It needs wind speed monitoring and strong wind early warning to avoid the victims due to fallen tree. This paper explains the development of wind monitoring and early warning system using wind speed sensor and weather forecasting. The steps involve investigating the wind speed, designing the system, developing the system, testing, and validating. The result shows that the system can measure the wind speed on the spot in real time and trigger the alert to the people around if the strong wind was occurred. On the other hand, it also informs the forecast of wind speed according to weather web services data few hours before. Applying this system will help the government to prevent the victims of fallen tree due to strong wind.
