What To Do When Your Drainage System Fails!



Relying on drainage systems alone could be your biggest mistake when heavy rains come. If it fails, your property and loved ones are in danger of flood.

Broken drainage system is one of the reasons why properties get flooded, even when it’s not a heavy downpour.

Checking the drainage system of a house is one way to make sure that the house is secured from any harm that floods can bring. It is often overlooked when searching for a new home. Whether you are looking for a place in an urban or rural area, a well-functioning drainage system is a must.

What effects does flood have on forests?



Flood contaminated with chemicals can do more harm to forest compared to damages brought by drought or fire. Such flood can directly affect even photosynthesis.

Forests play a great factor in controlling flood. During rainy season, trees absorb water. Any flow of water is hampered by a cluster of trees; thus slowing down the flood’s descent.

Trees also hold back and delay the flow of rainwater to streams and rivers. The soil tend to have a more open area which results from greater amounts of organic matter. They are also drier during summer periods due to high water consumption of forests. These conditions enhance the ability of the soil to receive and store rainwater, which is commonly referred to as a ‘sponge effect’.

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.

Is Boracay sinking?



Tranquil Boracay has just experienced its worst flood ever. This recent flooding offers a glimpse of what will happen to this island in the near future.

Is Boracay sinking to the sea_

Boracay and other Philippine islands the might be sinking!

Typhoon Urduja dumped more than two weeks’ worth of rain in the Boracay island in the weekend of December 18, 2017. Almost all 1,032 hectares of the island was flooded. Could this be a sign that the island is slowly sinking?

All indications seem to point to that direction. In reality, it’s just a heavy downpour since poor urban planning has not considered climate change and its intensified rains. Engineers planned the installation of a modern drainage system, but it is not yet finished. When the heavy downpour came, it resulted to a waist-high flood.

The Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA), an agency under the Department of Tourism, is responsible for putting up a proper drainage system on the island. So far, it has only finished the first phase of construction. The second phase is expected to begin in 2018, and the third phase will cover the northern part of the island.
