Getting Yourself Prepared for Sudden Thunderstorms and Heavy Rains

The weather is not the same as it used to be. Ask the elderly, your parents, older siblings, or even your grandparents about the weather during their younger years and it is pretty much the same answer. It has become more unpredictable now than before. With thunderstorms and heavy rain suddenly falling or even the sun shining brightly in months or days that used to be a day for rain and downpour. It has become erratic that sometimes trusting your phone AI’s and weather reports can be hard and sometimes a wrong move.

It is in this light that preparation and anticipating the sudden weather change is important for your daily travel, activities, and even personal decisions so as to not result in hassle and stress. Leaving your house and lot in Cavite or condo in Las Pinas might be a decision you will regret once you are caught in the heavy traffic brought about by flooding and heavy rain in major road thoroughfares so make sure to plan and prepare well for such scenarios.

Be Prepared for the Sudden Change in the Weather

With the uncertainty of what the weather will be it’s always better to be ready and prepared.

With that in mind, Crown Asia listed down some tips to help you prepare for the unpredictability of the Philippine weather!

Always Carry the Essentials

It is always better to be prepared. So, carrying a simple umbrella, raincoat, or even an extra shirt or pair of socks. With the weather being uncertain almost every day it’s always better to come in handy with basic things to protect you from the heat or cold.

For a better grasp of the weather, try checking the weather in the morning once and another in the early afternoon in order to be prepared before going to work or going home to your house and lot in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

Prepare your cars as well for the rainy weather.

Know where the high areas are along your daily route to work so that you are away from heavy flooding once you are stranded in a thunderstorm. Having an idea of the nearest hospitals, commercial establishments that offer overnight parking, and hotels to stay in when traveling home is not an option, is also good thing to take note of.

Also, it is apparent to prepare for the cool weather to prevent any sickness that comes with the cold environment.

Plan your trips
