Well, I think the best way of coping with HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL HAZARD is to just be prepared, and here are a few things you can keep in your homes just in case things go really bad.
2) First aid kit
3) Extra food
4) Extra drinking water. You can also store some in covered pails for sanitary reasons.
5) Fully charge mobile devices with extra batteries if possible. You can call for help and keep yourself occupied with games (if you like) while waiting for help.
6) A completely filled generator would be nice but considering it’s cost, we know not everyone will have it.
7) Before the wet season arrives, it would be best to check around the house for potential leaks like an unsecured corrugated metal roof panels. Clean your canals if you find any trash that may clog it during strong rains.
8) Keep everything inside like your pets, and anything important that can be blown away during a storm.
9) If flooding is a possibility, take everything important upstairs or somewhere close to the roof. These could be important documents and photos.
10) Have important phone numbers ready, like your relatives, police station and barangay hall just in case.
So, I’m sure that there are other things that we have missed but I believe this covers the basics of what is needed in order to cope with any hydrometeorological hazard.
