Floods are getting worse, are we prepared for it?



In my previous blog post, I have discussed the danger of rising sea levels and how much of a threat it is, especially for people living in coastal regions. Now aside from the rise in sea levels, let me briefly discuss one of the major effects of climate change – worsened flooding.
Gradual Increase of FloodsFloods gradually get worse as the global temperature and sea levels rise.

Flooding is said to be one of the most dangerous natural disasters worldwide alongside drought. An estimated 520 million people per year worldwide gets exposed to flood resulting to deaths and other serious damages.

What are thunderstorms? Should you be bothered about them?



There’s one feature of the dry season that most Filipinos do not like. What is it? It’s the thunderstorm!

In my previous flood safety tip, I talked about the beginning of the Philippines’ dry season. Since the Philippines is a tropical country, it does not go through the cycle of four seasons normally enjoyed in Western countries. Here, dry season is enough to bask in the glow of the morning sun!

However, there’s one feature of the dry season that most Filipinos do not like. Even those foreign nationals who have been living here for a long time (like me!) can vouch that the Philippines’ dry season is not all fun.

Cargo Ships Hampered by Flood



Cargo vessels can go anywhere in the world, but they rely on nature’s mercy, too. Trades depending on these vessels are affected when strong waves rack the sea.

Cargo ships might the biggest man-made vessels ever built. Due to their size and the nature of services they render, they can easily navigate even rough seas in their worst.

Reviewing 2017: How PH’s Private Sector Responds to Disasters



A closer look of Philippines’ milestones in 2017 will reveal that its private sector has always been an active collaborator in the field of disaster resiliency.

We can reminisce the past year, 2017, through various points of view. However, one thing that should not be left out in 2017’s memories is how Filipinos braved several natural disasters like typhoons, flooding, and many more.

Since the beginning of time, Filipinos have been bearing the brunt of storms, typhoons, and monsoon rains. Against all these odds, Filipinos stood up to prove the resiliency of their spirit; I can prove it, since I’ve been in this country for such a long time.

What you will read now is just one of the numerous evidences of the Filipinos’ resilience. You probably don’t notice it, but the country is seeing a phenomenon that must be replicate in other parts of Southeast Asia — the cooperation between the public and the private sector.
