Floods are getting worse, are we prepared for it?


Posted by Andreas Klippe | January 28, 2019

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.

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?


Posted by Andreas Klippe | April 17, 2018
