    Greetings! Another member from the Philippines here.

    Started assembling my EDC bags, and other kits two years ago when torrential rain flooded my home town. I am a scale modeler, and toy collector by nature, so having a prepared set of plans during disasters like that isn't really part of my mental thinking. But seeing our house flooded, everyone in our family lifting almost everything away from the flood waters, and having no concrete strategy to address situations like that got me to this preparedness mindset. :)

    With that, I hope I could learn more, and share some of my knowledge in this forum, Thanks!

    Hi from Jerusalem! Sorry about your flooding, a horrible thing to have to deal with.

    Hello from Davao! Wish I could say I know how you feel but we don't really see a lot of tropical storms or typhoons here in Davao. We do have some heavy rains that may or may not cause power outages and some floods here and there but nothing really major. Good thing we have forums like this. Being prepared is the best thing we can do against nature.

    Welcome to EDCF. Ingat! :D

    Mabuhay!
    I was in and out of Clark and Subic when I wore the uniform decades ago. I witnessed the devastation those floods caused. May you weather the deluge that the heavy waters bring with the prospect that better, brighter, and drier days are ahead for you and your wonderful people.

    Gandang umaga po! It will be better.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome I wish I could respond to all your greetings,I'll try though. So happy to see different people from different countries here, I sure hope I can learn a thing or two from all of you guys. EDCF is a big part in my quest to assemble my evolving EDC items.

    Thank you all for the care and encouragement about what happened. I was changed big time by that incident guys. To sir Pangcoy, glad to read you guys haven't experienced any major flooding in Davao, I live in the low lying shores of Cavite, so rains coming from the highlands of our province always come running down our area. As sir 0dBm pointed out, things may get rough, but all will be better.

    I will sir Cobra 6, glad to see other member's collections.

    Ayos lang mga tol, Salamat (I'm ok guys, Thanks)
