Map of flood-prone areas in Metro Manila--DPWH

Posted at 10/23/09 3:10 PM

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) came up with a map locating the flood prone areas in Metro Manila. Areas shaded in blue will be affected by 50-100 year flood cycle while those in yellow will be affected by 2-5 year flood cycle. The numbers in the years indicate the estimated probability of a flood event happening in a given year—the higher the flood cycle, the higher the water level of the flood.
