    actually how does the flood alert system works? by human observation or this there an electronic device that detects the water level? If it's the first time at Varsity Park, then chances are they didn't install those devices there.

    residents at Varsity Park must be worred sick by the flooding problem. very soon some lady will begin to film flooding situations and use it as evidence to convince the government to do something to stop the flooding, so that prices of the condo will not go down.

    but what can be done? elevate the entire stretch of west coast road? but that would push flood waters to nearby condos.

    Along the entire stretch of west coast, the lowest is the NUS and the PSA area. The rest are relatively higher and safe from flooding. So your condo is safe.

    We have Thailand suffering from its most severe flood in 50 years. This is probably caused by more intense El-Nino Southern Oscillation (in line with what I mentioned about similar phenomena about 1 year ago).

    I expect the monsoon to be more severe here end of this year and in the next few years, so you will need to rule out many places also.

    After which Singapore will switch to very hot and dry. However we are cutting down mature trees now and building more heat absorbing concrete and air-conditioned mega structures. It will be quite exhausting for outdoor activities and commuting by walking.

    we might consider investing into jet-skis as our alternative mode of transportation if there are frequent floods here...

    What do you mean by 'flood prone'? It's supposed to be once in 50 years event! PUB is indirectly slapping ex-Minister of MEWR in the face.
