About HazardHunterPH

HazardHunterPH is a tool that can be used to generate indicative hazard assessment reports on the user's specified location. It is helpful as a reference of property owners, buyers, land developers, planners, and other stakeholders needing immediate hazard information and assessment. It aims to increase people's awareness to natural hazards and advocates the implementation of plans to prepare for and mitigate the effects of hazards.

All information used for the calculation of hazard assessment results are based on the most recent updates provided by the corresponding mandated government agencies through the GeoRiskPH Integrated System. To know more about other archived data or more detailed information about the hazards, please contact DOST-PHIVOLCS for seismic and volcanic hazards, DOST-PAGASA for storm surge and severe wind hazards, and DENR-MGB for flood and rain-induced landslide hazards.

For Official Hazard Assessment Reports, a request can be sent to DOST-PHIVOLCS, DOST-PAGASA or DENR-MGB. Please do note that official documents may require payments to cover reproduction costs.

HazardHunterPH is a product of GeoRisk Philippines, a multi-agency initiative led by DOST-PHIVOLCS and participated by DOST-PAGASA, DOST-ASTI, DENR-MGB, DENR-NAMRIA, DND-OCD, and DepEd.
