The persistent rain keeps Sibuians nightmarish! It is nerve-racking nowadays to wake up in the middle of a night to find rain pouring down, worrying the water level might be already on the rise.
I am more fortunate to be in an area which is much less flood-prone. But I feel for those who are in the low-lying black-listed zones. Are they going to stay awake at night to keep watch of rising water level?
According to the news today, some multipronged flood mitigation projects would be planned out after the Lunar New Year. This is more or less warming up an old dish and as such, it is not expected to stir up any bout of excitement. Anyway, it has been a long wait and we sincerely hope something concrete would be forthcoming this time.
The ambitious PR has added a new dimension to the local politics, making it a lot more interesting. Let's stay tuned in to it!
