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.

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.

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.
