In a bid to ensure that devastating natural disasters such as Typhoon Ondoy will never happen again, the local government of Tanay is currently training its employees on disaster preparedness and response and climate change adaptation (DRRM/CCA).
It can be recalled that Tanay was the worst-hit municipality in Rizal province during Ondoy’s onslaught, with some 60 fatalities and millions’ worth of damages to infrastructure and agriculture.
The Tanay microwatershed found in So. Tablon, Brgy. Cuyambay overflowed at the height of Ondoy and the large volume of water rushed downstream into Tanay River. Many of the fatalities lived in So. Bayuo in Brgy. Tandang Kutyo, which is located along the riverbanks of Tanay River.
