Early warning system in Mandaue villages set up

An early warning system and public address system had been set up and is operational in Mandaue City, the Mandaue City Disaster and Risk Reduction Management Office said Tuesday.

Felix Suico, Mandaue City disaster management office chief, said the system operates in Barangays Casuntingan, Paknaan Site, Alang-Alang and Pulang Bukid since they house lots of informal settlers.

Suico said their system consists of instruments to measure water level, rain gauge and wind speed. A public siren system to notify the command center and the outlying communities is also installed.

“This is set up so we can immediately dispatch teams to address the emergency,” Suico said. He said they are monitoring the Mahiga and Butuanon rivers whose waters can affect 100 families per barangay.
