yphoon Haiyan, known as Super Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, was one of the most intense tropical cyclones on record.

NOAH (Nationwide Assessment of Hazards) is an advance warning service developed by the Phillipines to manage the risk of natural disasters such as typhoons, floods, landslides, and volcanos – the Philippines is a country that has it all. Ranking 3rd place on the World Risk Index, behind Vanuatu and Tonga, the Philippines is heavily exposed to extreme weather.

The Philippines’ research, education and government information network PREGINET plays a vital role, reliably interconnecting the NOAH infrastructure of water level and landslide sensors, rain gauges, satellites and radars, and making data accessible to a wide range of users.
