geo opcen

In observance of the National Disaster Resilience Month, MGB-IX upgrades its Geohazard Operation Center (GEO-OPCEN IX) by installing Smart Television sets so that the Geosciences Division (GSD) can have better access in monitoring weather forecasts and other natural disasters.

Chief Geologist Jessica Lucero heads the GEO-OPCEN in its regular monitoring of online weather forecasts and advisories pronounced by PAGASA which have been the basis of re-issuance of geohazard advisories to Local Government Units especially with areas highly susceptible to rain-induced landslide and flooding during inclement weather conditions.
