CLIMATEX
The Climate Experiment: Predicting Rainfall for the Philippines

 

To address the perennial flooding in the CAMANAVA (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela) area, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST)installed additional automated rain gauges (ARGs) in the past months through its National Capital Region (NCR) office. The installation is part of the initiative for emergency distribution of hydrometeorological devices in hard hit areas in the country.

Rain gauge is a weather instrument used by meteorologists and hydrologists to measure the amount of rain in an area over a certain period. The rain gauges were installed in Mapulang Lupa, Pleasant View Subdivision in Barangay Bagbaguin and at the Smart cell site 2 at Gen. T. de Leon. Two more ARGs were put up in Dampalit Elementary School in Malabon and at the Smart cell site 3 in Caloocan City.

CAMANAVA, having a lower elevation compared with other cities and municipalities in Metro Manila, is prone to constant flooding. In fact, the occurrence of high tide also contributes to flooding even without weather disturbances.
