This document discusses how to monitor and follow-up on the damage caused by rain precipitation in various regions of La Paz from December to April. During this period, La Paz is quite vulnerable because of its topographic, geological and hydrological conditions. A series of emergency events and disasters - floods, landslides and structural decay are worsened by the constant rain. Therefore, this article discusses how these variables can be used to determine the values that will serve as the indicators for the different warning levels that will be implemented in the Primary Flood Alert System in La Paz.
