Monitoring weather disturbances, and their corresponding hazards, has now been made easier.
• Get updates on rain and weather outlooks for different Philippine cities
• View satellite images of typhoons in the Philippine Area of Responsibility
• See actual and forecasted typhoon positions
• Check water levels of streams all over the country
• View recorded rainfall amounts in the past 24 hours
• See areas with possible flooding and landslides due to heavy rain
• Share NOAH's information easily to your social media accounts
This is the official iOS app version of the Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards (Project NOAH) website (http://noah.dost.gov.ph). The companion app to ARKO (the mobile app for flood, storm surge, and landslide hazard maps), the NOAH iOS app features a user-friendly interface that allows you to view near real time weather information, which can help prevent and mitigate disasters.
This mobile app was improved by Pointwest in cooperation with Project NOAH. Content and data come from the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and its participating agencies.
Project NOAH’s mission is to undertake disaster science research and development, advance the use of cutting edge technologies and recommend innovative information services in government's disaster prevention and mitigation efforts. Though the use of science and technology and in partnership with the academe and other stakeholders, the DOST through Program NOAH is taking a multi-disciplinary approach in developing systems, tools, and other technologies that could be operationalized by government to help prevent and mitigate disasters.

Ratings and Reviews
Plenty of room for improvment
The app can be summed up in two letters: “OK”.
App works fine, functions fine, and performs fine. But that’s “fine”, not great. Silky smooth on my 6S, and I assume it will be for most devices, BUT it is obviously not optimized to scale with the newer iPhone form factors. The resolution is scaled to fit for the iPhone 5, 5S, SE, and lower rather than for newer iOS devices. It’s pretty obvious with the way text on the status bar within the app is a lot larger than that on the regular homescreen on the iPhone 6 and later.
To add to that, the interface is starting to look dated by 2018 standards.
Otherwise, the app is a great platform for viewing weather data and the like. My point still stands however, as the app can be improved upon greatly if given enough time and effort.
We NEED an update!
Kindly update this app its been over 10 months already, and its a typhoon season now in the country.
No longer supported
This was such a great app. It’s so sad that the government stopped funding the project that gave the people this useful app.
