Philippine Flood Reporting and Mapping system (www.nababaha.com)
The massive flooding triggered by Typhoon Ondoy last Sept. 26, 2009 has led members of the Volcano-Tectonics Laboratory in U.P. NIGS to provide Filipinos with flood hazard maps in www.nababaha.com.
This website also includes a flood reporting option where citizens can place the date, time, and height of the flood in their location. Data collected will help in verifying the flood hazard maps produced through flood simulation.
Below is a video on how to place your input in the system:
