The mission of RS Flood Control Asia can be summarized as: save lives through flood-proof living. In fact, one of the first blogs we published was about simple ways it can be done. A lot of time has passed since.
Let’s revisit the tips we gave and update them. We’ll show you simple ways of flood-proof living for today!
1. Always Be Alert
In the past, we advised you to keep in mind that flooding can happen in any place any time. Rain in one place can cause flood in another. Luckily, keeping updated is as easy as ever. More and more people can now use the internet making it easy to get the latest on weather news. There are multiple weather forecast websites supported by different meteorological agencies from all around the world.
If rain or flood is anticipated, monitor your surroundings. Check if your house can withstand a huge amount of water and make sure there is a path for the water to subside.
Calling all gearheads, the rainy season is coming and your beloved car could be in trouble! Cars are notorious for rapid depreciation, losing half their value once they are driven off the showroom, but every car enthusiast knows that there’s more to a car than it’s monetary value. Cars can be sentimental and become a part of family moments. Insurance, protective coatings, and regular maintenance are ways of everyday protection for your car. But have you prepared for car flood protection?
You already know that when the rainy season comes, floods follow. There are only a few things that can be more disastrous for a vehicle than flood. Guaranteed, a flooded car will experience multiple intermittent problems without proper restoration. Sometimes, the availability of replacement parts can be troublesome. Other times, specialized tools are needed which prevent the user from repairing the car on their own. Then, the car gets stuck at the mechanic’s shop – before you know it, the bills start stacking up and the repairs start costing more than the car.

The COVID Pandemic has infected more than 4 million people worldwide and millions more have been urged back into their homes or worse, in hospitals. Those who have been restricted to their homes have been in quarantine for more than 1 month. Needless to say, people are very excited to get out of their homes and out of this pandemic. Unfortunately no end is in sight and worse, experts say we will feel the effects for the years to come. With all the attention to the coronavirus, many more could be suffering from COVID Tunnel Vision.
COVID Tunnel Vision is the mistake of concentrating too much resources on the current COVID pandemic that we forget the other inevitable problems we have to face. The world has been so focused on COVID response efforts that there are annual dangers that are being overlooked, underreported, and deprioritized.
