Floodwaters of epic proportions are not new to us anymore, Flashback to 2009, We met the first monster flasflood called Ondoy, In just 9 hours, of Sept 24, 2012, Ondoy dumped over a month’s volume of rain. The typhoon lasted for a few days, but the recovery from it was long, tough and, to those directly affected, painful. brand new cars were sold for less than 40k. and I bought plenty of them for parts.
In recent years, rains brought by the southwest monsoon – locally known as habagat – and enhanced by nearby storms have become as destructive as the big storms like pedring, milenyo and yolanda.
In August 2012, the habagat was enhanced by a typhoon with international codename Haikui.
In the same month the following year, another habagat was enhanced by severe tropical storm Maring (international name Trami). which triggered massive flodding and destroyed or washed away new cars. (which I bought for spare parts).
What can we do to stop another Ondoy from happening? as of now? NONE. we can only prepare, by transferring and/or moving our cars in an elevated parking, we can only do a little now. because the actual preparation should be done last summer. and not now.
grr!!!!!!NOTHING HAS CHANGED. YES, OUR ROAD HAS. THE ROAD ONLY. THE ROAD.... but the draining system has not!!
this is your loverboy DENNIS signing out.
