From the result of frequency analysis, it is then determined that certain rainfall duration represents the general rainfall condition in the research area. Research will show that rainfall pattern on the Northern Coast of Bolaang Mongondow, for heavy storm have a tendency of 7 hour duration, with 22% distribution for the first hour, 28% distribution for the second hour, 19% distribution for the third hour, 15% for the fourth hour, 7% for the fifth hour, 6% for the sixth hour, and 3% for the seventh hour.
