You probably had seen how miserable the lives of the people in Central Luzon had become after two typhoons; Pedring and Quiel had shattered all their hard-earned properties, their loved stuff, their houses, their lives, their dreams and practically all what they have.
On a most practical note, there is actually nothing we can do about all these typhoons passing by us considering Philippines geographic location but there is something we can do to at least lessen the damage it may cause our properties – this besides the efforts of the government to prevent, rescue, help its people from further devastation.
I’ve seen this steel building while wandering around the net, I just thought why can’t the government build a massive housing project built on strong steels that can withstand intense water inflow, I know materials of this kind invite heat, but I think it’s just a matter of injecting sustainable architectural designs that will lessen if not avert the heat. I understand this type of project can require much, but doing my math suggests that buildings made to last can let one save most than those shanty-type which often necessitates rebuilding over and over again.
Just a thought!
