Hydromet tools in Abra checked
by PIA–Abra

BANGUED, Abra – With disaster preparedness being an all-year round activity, all systems should be checked regularly to ensure effective and responsive disaster management program.

The Department of Science and Technology provincial office led by Menandro Buenafe is going around the different municipalities where various hydromet devices are installed to check if they are functioning properly.

Hydromet devices come in four kinds: the automated rain gauge (ARG), the automated weather stations (AWS), the water level monitoring station (WLMS), and the tandem or combination of ARG and WLMS (TDM).

These devices save on human labor by automatically recording weather-related information.

Engr. Ingemar Zarate said ARGs, which are used to measure the volume of rainfall, are installed in different sections of the Abra River and almost all the 27 municipalities have the device. The data collected by the instruments help forewarn the dangers of flooding.

The AWS provides a timely weather condition of a certain area in its coverage. The data generated from the AWS are directly monitored by the Weather Bureau of the government for ready and easy use.

The WLMS, on the other hand, measures water level in a particular area where the device is installed. This serves as an immediate warning device so that people would know the appropriate action to prevent dangers of flooding.

The TDM is more effective as it is a combination of the ARG and WLMS. But not all municipalities have been installed with the device.
