What are thunderstorms? Should you be bothered about them?

Posted by Andreas Klippe | April 17, 2018

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.

Flood specialists like me have been waiting for this announcement – the Philippines’ dry season has officially begun!

two_seasons_philippinesThe Philippines goes through two seasons within a year. These two seasons are commonly called dry and wet season. Seasons like spring, winter, and fall do not occur in the Philippines.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced that the easterlies (wind pattern coming from the east or the Pacific Ocean) has started blowing through the Philippines. It’s a sign of warmer days ahead!

The Global Fight against Climate Change: Know it and Act on it!

Posted by Andreas Klippe | April 6, 2018

In our previous flood safety tip, we talked about the United Nations’ (UN) concern on climate change and the Paris Agreement.

I understand that putting climate change in a global context is something that needs further elaboration. What I mean is, how sure are we that everyone understands the global effort to stop climate change?


Are we aware that the United Nations are busy working to prevent the rise of global temperature? Are we even aware that the Paris Agreement on Climate Change is just a part of the larger effort to save the earth?

As a flood safety specialist, there’s one news that shocked me and nearly ruined my week. United Nations Secretary-General Antònio Guterres said that it might be too late to save the world from the devastating effects of climate change.

melting_of_the_arcticIn spite of our efforts to reverse global warming, it might be too late to do such. With or without measures to stop global warming, the Arctic ice will soon melt. | photo credits to https://fee.org

I know what I said was a bit vague. Let me go down into the details.

In a report published on the official website of United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Guterres said that, literally, the whole mankind should do something now to hold the reins of climate change. Otherwise, its effect would be almost irreversible.

Rushing floodwaters are a force of nature. Its purpose is only one to go to the path of least resistance going to the lowest part of the ground. Anything that gets in the way are either swept away or go diverted from it. But eventually anything the isn’t anchored is likely to sweep away too. The ground to which it is anchored can be washed away.


Floodwater current are the most dangerous in the world. Anything can be swept away including vehicles. Even at six inches it can knock a person off his feet due the strength of the current. Given enough time and intensity, it can weaken even the strongest foundation there is.
