How German Technology can Contain PH Flood Disasters



The world is drowning. While it continues to battle the global pandemic, yet another calamity has literally drowned several parts of Asia and America.

The world is drowning. While it still continues to battle with a global pandemic, yet another calamity has literally drowned several parts of Asia and America. In the beginning of November 2020, Typhoon Rolly, called Goni internationally, affected some areas of the Philippines. The biggest impact was experienced in the Bicol region. A week after, as the Filipinos started rebuilding their lives and livelihoods, they were battered again by another storm, the Typhoon Ulysses, international name Vamco. Ulysses, after affecting eight regions in the country, went straight to Vietnam, damaging everything that gets on its way. This situation is not unique to Asia, though. Reports show that Hurricane Iota which pummeled Central America has brought heavy rain, extreme winds and storm surges over the region. Iota is recorded as the 30th hurricane to cross the region.

What are thunderstorms? Should you be bothered about them?



There’s one feature of the dry season that most Filipinos do not like. What is it? It’s the thunderstorm!

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!

How prepared are you in a flood calamity?



People become complacent once a typhoon season has passed. How about for the next rainy season? Have you prepared for it?

Now that 2017 has come to a close, the typhoon season have come and go. During the 2017, the Pacific ocean managed to produce 25 named storms, 10 typhoons and only two super typhoons.
