The recent weather disturbances affecting Negros Oriental and the Visayas these past few days is nothing out of the ordinary.

In fact, this year has seen fewer rainy days than in previous years.

The fewer storms this year has tempted a lot of people to let their guard down. Slowly, people are building homes on dry riverbeds, and in coastal areas.

Predictably, it won’t be long before a strong storm would come, and render them flood victims.

It doesn’t have to be that way. We can always be on the safe side by heeding the advice of government agencies like the Pag-asa, and abide by the warnings in the hazard maps of the Department of Environment & Natural Resources.

After all, these projections are not mere wild guesses but are based on science.

In the case of scientific experiments and findings, you can repeat and repeat an experiment, and still get about the same results.

So if a warning is made about the high possibility of floods and storm surges, that could very well happen, and those living in the identified danger zones should take heed, lest they be encountering untold misfortunes.

It is always best to be prepared, and to take heed from the experts.
