It has caused floods and landslides that have resulted in damages and casualties. As of August 18, the death toll was 77, comprising 62 in Kastamonu, 14 in Sinop, and 1 in Bartın.

On August 14, heavy rain continued in wide areas of Japan. Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Saga and Nagasaki prefectures have registered record downpours due to the issuance of emergency warnings by Japan Meteorological Agency. Local authorities issued the highest level of alert to around 1.42 million people, and about 650,000 households in the four prefectures.

On August 14, strong flash floods and landslides swept down the steep hillsides of Gunung Jerai in the Yan District of Kedah State in Malaysia. In consequence, at least 4 people lost their lives and 2 are still missing.

Officials said 11 bodies had been found as of August 26. Three survived but were injured. Local observers said that the recent downpour caused the landslide.

7 — Philippines

As of September 11, tropical cyclone Jolina (international name: Conson) affected 62,022 families or 240,844 persons in Regions NCR, III, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, V, VI, and VIII. Then, tropical cyclone Kiko (international name: Chanthu) affected 2,942 families or 10,628 people in Regions I, II, and CAR as of September 14.

There’s Still Time to Take Action

Based on the 3rd Quarter Asia weather recap, torrential rainfall that leads to floods or landslides has been the most frequent natural disaster. Only one quarter remains before the year ends. However, Asians can be on the verge of facing tropical cyclones that bring damaging downpours and floods. 

As a matter of fact, tropical cyclones Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) and Ulysses (international name: Vamco) both hit the Philippines in November—the former in 2013 and the latter in 2020. 

It is well-known that Yolanda is one of the most powerful tropical cyclones of all time. Why? Because it affected 14 million people across 44 provinces and caused the death of 6,000 people. The overall cost of damage it caused was at $5.8 billion. Ulysses, on the other hand, was the deadliest tropical cyclone to hit the country in 2020, as it affected 879,000 people (8 regions) and killed 12. How horrifying both were! 

Again, Yolanda and Ulysses took place in November, and November is just a breath away!

Only one quarter remains before the year ends, but we can be sure that Asians will be faced with tropical cyclones that bring damaging downpours and floods.

Given that the effects of torrential rainfall and flooding brought by tropical cyclones can put lives at risk, we can’t afford to waste this very moment not doing anything to prepare ourselves for what may happen. 

There’s time and there are possible solutions — the German climate-change-addressing technologies!

They are made of lightweight marine-grade aluminum, hot-dipped galvanized steel, or stainless steel. These flood protection barriers can resist extreme weather conditions and can last for up to 100 years.

    Two weather systems are currently affecting the conditions in different areas across the Philippines. The Northeast Monsoon or Amihan is causing cold winds over the extreme northern Luzon; and the Easterlies or the humid air coming from the Pacific Ocean on the eastern portion of the country.

    PAGASA said in their latest bulletin that cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are expected over #Caraga and #Davao region; partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over #Batanes and #BabuyanIslands.
