FLOOD AREAS IN METRO MANILA
« on: August 19, 2012, 10:19:59 AM »
I guess we need to be educated that buying a condo or any real estate property needs time and money and we need to be extra careful in dealing with transactions with real estate agents. Minsan kasi di nila dinidisclose yung full information on this matter. No wonder yung iba kasi gusto lang nila makabenta. dba?

And since we Philippines are prone to calamities it would be best to identify which areas should be avoided. I thought creating this thread to discuss about topic of flooding and control and real estate property in general.


Anyone would like to share ? Saan saan ba sa Metro Manila ang mga binabaha madalas at dapat iwasan pag bibili ka property?

Actually yung madalas na areas na binabaha ay yung nasa CAMANAVA area. or Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela.

Mababa kasi ang mga areas na yan at yung iba dyan ay below sea level talaga. That is what i heard from a friend who lives in there. pero di naman lahat dyan binabaha.

I suggest kung bibibili ka ng condominium yung nasa matataas na lugar like Makati, Mandaluyong, San Juan,  Of course may ilan ding mga isolated places dyan na binabaha pero generally speaking it's ideal place.

Or you might consider outside Metro Manila kasi sobrang congested na. Idenify areas for expanson like yung sa Cavite at Laguna area.

I think kahit saan pang lugar sa Manila e may tendency na din bahain.... Nabasa nyo na eto?


A geologist and University of the Philippines professor revealed during a Senate hearing on climate change that Metro Manila is gradually and noticeably sinking.

"Lumulubog ang lupa sa Malabon at hindi lang Malabon. Actually the entire Metro Manila is sinking...not slowly. It's sinking at several centimeters per year," said Dr. Fernando Siringan of the UP Marine Science Institute at Thursday's climate change committee hearing on the state of disaster and climate risks in the country.

He said that in Malabon, some areas have been sinking by 10 centimeters a year and others by as much as one meter in four years. He said that the subsidence is easily noticeable, as several places that used to be flood-free now experience flooding. "May kalye na itinaas ng isang metro wala pang tatlo, apat na taon, binabaha na naman ng tubig dagat, hindi tubig ulan. Bakit ka papasukin ng tubig dagat kung 'di bumababa ang lugar?" he said.

Siringan also noted that apart from the region's sinking, the sea level is also rising by almost one centimeter per year because of global warming. The geologist explained that one of the causes of Metro Manila's sinking is the over-extraction of ground water.

Senate climate change committee chair Senator Loren Legarda added it is also being caused by the conversion of fish ponds into other structures. "Pag bumabagsak ang lupa, pagdating ng ulan ay siyempre lumulubog...napupuno rin ang ating karagatan and siltation ng mga tubig na ito ay nakakadulot din ng baha," she said. "Ito ay dapat ini-input sa pagplano ng mga public works project at pati pagplano sa mga flood control project," she added.

Siringan mentioned Metro Manila's sinking after saying the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) did not follow scientists' suggestion to widen the rivers to address flooding in Metro Manila. "Imbes na luwagan, sinikipan pa ang mga ilog. Walang bisa na laliman nang laliman ang ilog because it will be filled up by sediments anyway," he said. "Ang point ko lang, kung may mga projects, dapat ikonsider [na] tumataas ang dagat at bumababa ang lupa at ang pagbaba ng lupa ay hindi pantay-pantay at hindi mabagal ito, ito ay mabilis," he added.

Legarda said the DPWH has committed to change phases 1 and 2 of their flood control projects affecting Malabon, Navotas, Caloocan, and Valenzuela, but did not specify the changes.

this is true, methinks ... a lot have been saying so, esp Archt Jun Palafox who has been advocating for innovative buildings that can withstand floods and earthquakes..but as usual, all these finding will fall on deaf ears kasi ayaw gumastos ng gobyerno...

Oo nga pansin ko nga din Maya't-maya may tinatayong new condominiums at high rise towers, the weight is just too great for the city bed to support, ganyan yung nangyari sa isang lugar sa Middle East na dahil sa dami ng high rise structures, bumigat ng husto yng city at nagsisink ito gradually.

Posible talagang lumubog ang Metro Manila kasi sa climate change. etong habagat na naexperience ng ilan sa atin recently can tell.

paano kasi anak ng anak yung mga wala namang trabaho. dumadagdag yun mga tapon ng tapon ng mga basura yan mga salot na yan tapos sa government sisihin. hirap talaga kapag wala ka na ngang pinagaralan tapos hindi pa nakikinig sa mas may knowledge about certain matters.

Sigurado sa pasig at marikina dahil sa mga ilog. Kapag flooded areas ay itong dalawa talaga ang alam kong sikat.
