Flooding can occur anytime be it during day or night. By day, everyone can be warned for impending flood so they setup barriers.
But what if it were to happen at night time when everybody is asleep? Who would set up the flood protection barriers? An automated system would be the best option for such a scenario. The barrier would be programmed such that a single touch of a button can set it up.
Also its sensor can detect the rising water. Also, the complete reliability and barriers must be setup discreetly in keeping with the surroundings.
The weather system in the world has changed dramatically in the last century. Storms have become stronger than before and rainfall has always been in the extreme. Flash floods have become unpredictable, and everyone has to prepare for the worst.
Aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda
Climate change has forever changed the world’s weather patterns. Category five typhoons and storm surges, which were once considered a rarity, are now becoming common place. As polar ice caps melt, the average monthly rainfall is expected to double and ocean levels can surge for up to 10 feet. For low-lying lands, this means none but frequent flooding.
Do you believe that nature can exist without man, but man cannot live without nature?
I for one believe that outrageous weather such as tropical storm and other related calamities are some of Mother Nature’s terrifying blunt force. Even billions of years ago, these kinds of phenomenons are way too impossible to elude. Once it strikes the land, all living and nonliving things will perish.
Collapsed bridges, crashed buildings, cracked roads, crumbled cables, colossal deaths tolls, and many more are some of the obvious impact of this land catastrophes.The lack of preparation and consciousness at times leads to more devastating state that might result to a long time recovery.
Among the natural disaster hitting the earth, flood or flooding is the most common and one of the worst calamity to be recorded. It has the erosive power to wipe away the entire city, coastline or area, and even cause extensive damage to life and property.
Flooding usually comes after intensive rain and can reach the height of at least 4 to 6 meters.
Ignore the risk and you will find yourself floating outside your house together with the shattered furnitures.
Snorkels, Surfboard, Flip- Flops, Paddles… Tired of swimming through flood?
Flooding do not respect any boundaries. It will devour properties, from residential houses to business establishments, and will flow from one city to the next.
“Philippines, hailed as the most storm-exposed country in the world, can turn the slightest of rains into a car-sinking spectacle.”
You can blame it on the faulty drainage systems that the government fails miserably to repair or on the man-made troubles like global warming.
But the truth of the matter is, flooding is a part of the Philippine motoring during rainy season, and it does not look like it is going to be different anytime soon.
