Flooding is a common phenomena in the Philippines and a small town of the country named Angono is frequently flooded. Data analysed from 1960- 2008 shows that the frequency of flooding in the Philippines is increasing rapidly with the change in climate.

Children and old people are mostly exposed to the flooding and similarly adversely impacted by the hazard.
