Horrifying video clip of a flashflood. Dr. Mahar Lagmay, executive director of the Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards or Project NOAH, stresses the need for hazard information communication to the entire country by beginning his talk with a brief, disturbing clip of a knee-high flashflood washing out a group of people down a ravine, taken from a mobile device. He said that because of lack of information, natural events catch people by surprise, thus leading to disasters. This has to be prevented, Dr. Lagmay emphasized.
