PAGASA Introduces New Rainfall Monitoring Initiative

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced a new innovation in rainfall monitoring which will help the agency gather “efficient and accurate weather reports and forecasts in the local communities.” The Community-Based Rainfall Observation Network (CBRON), the agency’s new project, will involve local government units and local residents in gathering weather data. Aurora was the first province in the country to respond in the project. DOST said Aurora Gov. Bellaflor Angara-Castillo pledged to help in upgrading some equipment at PAGASA’s radar and synoptic station which is located at one of Baler’s steep mountains.
