THE cities of Makati, Muntinlupa and Taguig are safe from floods, according to records culled from the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) and Nababaha.com.
MyProperty.ph listed data from Nababaha.com and the MGB’s Geohazard Map of the Philippines which indicates areas in Metro Manila and their respective status during the monsoon season. The list was made to help property hunters identify places safe from floods.
The rainy season usually starts in June and lasts until October.
“Some of the most prominent areas in Makati—namely Forbes Park, Bel-Air, and Dasmariñas Village—belong in the low-risk categories in relation to flooding. Also considered low- to moderate- risk are the barangays of Cembo, Bangkal, and Magallanes, which are located close to EDSA,” MyProperty.ph said.
“Bonifacio Global City is perhaps the most famous area in Taguig that experiences little to no flooding because of its underground drainage detention system. Other barangays to consider are Tanyag, Upper Bicutan, North Daang Hari, South Daang Hari, and Western Bicutan,” it added.
“Generally, Muntinlupa’s exclusive gated communities are relatively safe from flooding, including Ayala Alabang and Alabang Hills. The business districts of Filinvest Corporate City and Madrigal Business Park, both of which are master-planned communities, are also considered low-flood-risk zones as well,” the online property portal said.
The other cities with low flood risk are Caloocan, Las Piñas, Mandaluyong and San Juan.
Those that are prone to flooding are Malabon, Manila, Marikina, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Pasig, Pateros, Quezon City and Valenzuela.
