The Need to Protect Flood-management Infrastructure from Floods



Eleven years ago in September 2009, Tropical Storm “Ondoy”, internationally named as “Ketsana”, plunged many parts of Metro Manila into waist to rooftop-level floodwaters. The people of Metro Manila, especially those in the cities of Pasig, Quezon, Manila, Caloocan, Muntinlupa and Marikina lost their homes and livelihoods. Some, unfortunately, lost their lives. Cold, tired, hungry and weak, some even had managed to climb the highest parts of their houses, waiting for the floodwaters to cease.

The world is drowning. While it still continues to battle with a global pandemic, yet another calamity has literally drowned several parts of Asia and America. In the beginning of November 2020, Typhoon Rolly, called Goni internationally, affected some areas of the Philippines. The biggest impact was experienced in the Bicol region. A week after, as the Filipinos started rebuilding their lives and livelihoods, they were battered again by another storm, the Typhoon Ulysses, international name Vamco. Ulysses, after affecting eight regions in the country, went straight to Vietnam, damaging everything that gets on its way. This situation is not unique to Asia, though. Reports show that Hurricane Iota which pummeled Central America has brought heavy rain, extreme winds and storm surges over the region. Iota is recorded as the 30th hurricane to cross the region.
