NOAH stands for Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards. This tool developed by DOST is a great help for weather forecast and disaster prevention.

Our congratulations go to DOST and PAGASA. ApplauseApplauseApplause

There are also 4 “Doppler” radar station investigating the water content of the atmosphere:

A great tool. But unfortunately only few Pinoy/Pinays can read a map. I asked around in our family and found that neither kids nor parents nor grand-parents can find our home-town on the map. On a world map they are completely lost and can’t find the Philippines until the name of their nation is readable.

This is NOW a challenge for the schools. Learn your kids reading maps. Do it NOW!
