It's been 1 year since superstorm Sandy hit the east coast of the United States, flooding the streets and subways of New York and Jersey. Since then, the world has been facing natural disaster after natural disaster and just to make sure Singapore isn't left out of the fun, today the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) announced that the total rainfall Singapore will have this coming December and January will be 10 to 20 percent higher than normal.
The reason for this is due to the La Nina phenomenon that should bring more
rainfall to Southeast Asia this year. What does this means? It means Singapore
will have floods again! Just last month, many areas in Singapore were hit with
floods and even yesterday, flash floods occurred at Changi. So as we are hit by floods by year end, we know why.
Or to be more accurate; the Singapore government has a ready-made excuse on why we are going to have floods later this year.
