The initial submission is correct, with exception of one point. The data is considered to be timely. The submission stated that data is not up to date. However, during the moment of review, updated information for current day and following days was available. Therefore the answer was changed. The website contains a data section. Yet, at the moment of review, the data section of the website did not display any content. Data cannot be downloaded. The following webpage served as reference data, and all questions were applied to it: http://www.senamhi.gob.bo/extendidof.php?ciudad=Sucre&pais=Bolivia The website also provides historical data, see here: http://www.senamhi.gob.bo/sismet/index.php The website does not display an open license, but shows a copyright notification.
