Senix sensors monitor Philippine flooding
A variety of factors make the Philippines, and especially the Manila region, among the most flood prone in the world. Tropical rains flow rapidly from mountain uplands to the Manila basin where dense urbanization accelerates run-off. To make matters worse, Manila is built on lowlands that are getting lower due to ground water extraction and the weight of urban concrete and steel. As a result, typhoon storm surges can now extend up to 20 km inland. In addition to these weather risks, the Philippine coast is predicted to experience a Tsunami up to 10 meters high in this century.
