6 Ways of Flood-proof Living UPDATED



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!

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.

Dry season is about to end. Are you weather-ready?



Scattered rains and thunderstorms brought floods to parts of Metro Manila and across the country the past weeks – an indication of the dry season’s end and the onset of the rainy season.

The rains are caused by various weather conditions:

  1. A frontal system or boundary between air masses that drenched and will continue to prevail over large parts of the country
  2. The southwesterly surface wind flow felt over Region 4A and Western Visayas and,
  3. localized thunderstorms that bring cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms.

German research says river flooding likely to intensify



Germany’s Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research raised a warning that even developed countries are now becoming more vulnerable to flooding.

Developed countries in the west, no matter how advanced their infrastructures are, are facing the growing threat of river flooding.

So say Sven N. Willmer and his companions in their study published by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), a Germany-based environmental think-tank.

Their study, entitled “Adaptation Required to Preserve Future High-End River Flood Risk at Present Levels”, discussed how the steady warming of the earth can worsen the already perennial river flooding in Europe, America, and Asia.

UNMASKING the FCA Flood Barriers
What Makes FCA Flood Barriers the Best among the Rest



Let’s strip down the FCA flood barriers and let’s not leave a single corner not inspected — so we’ll know what makes them the best among the rest.

We know you’ve been following our exposés about Flood Control Asia RS (FCA) flood barriers since we first got in touch with you. But, we have to tell you something you haven’t heard from us yet.

Everything we told you since our first exposé can be compared to pep talk. Chalk talk. Pure “cheerleading”.

Come to think of it, we discussed what floodwater pressure is, what anchor plates are, and how back braces work. We simply discussed components that other flood barriers do not have.

At the end of the day, we haven’t told you anything crucial about the flood barriers.

Now, for the first time, we will unmask the (REAL) flood barriers before you. We will show you what the flood barriers are made of, and what makes them the best among the rest.

3 Things I Wish I Knew 5 Years Ago about Flood Control



Ten years ago, most of us see flood control measures as an issue in public infrastructure projects. Five years after that, almost nothing has changed — people still see flood solution as a responsibility of the government.

While the said thought still holds a grain of truth in our present times, flood control is now becoming a personal matter. The reason behind this sudden paradigm shift is the increasing threat of climate change, which exempts no one from untoward incident.
