The main objective of the study was to produce a prototype that would give warning through an alarm and Short Message Service (SMS) to the public in case of a storm surge occurrence. This study focused only on storm surge and it can be beneficial to the community by imposing awareness, which leads to preparedness. Through mitigation techniques and prevention effects, sudden death can be avoided. Results of this study shows that the prototype can indeed recognize storm surge, trigger the alarm, and send text messages to those concerned. This would benefit the Civil Engineers, Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the community and future researchers.
