Can the annual floods from Marikina River be controlled?
MetadataShow full item record
The recent torrential floods that devastated Pakistan is reminiscent of the 2009 onslaught of Ondoy that left thousands dead and billions of damaged properties. Then after, other threats from the overflow of rivers became almost a perennial nightmare of the residents, not only of nearby communities but of entire cities and municipalities that are gravely affected every time the typhoons and monsoon bring extraordinary volume of rains. The big question is, can we still possibly control the negative impact of such floods, particularly the one caused by the usual inundations of Marikina River?
