How it works:
- Forest fires: December to March
- Floods: rains throughout the year, may trigger floods, disrupt transportation and damage roads.
What to do:
- Travel at the “right” time to the “right” place
- Media reports, weather forecasts
- Global Disaster Alert Coordination System
- Reacting to one:
- Forest fires: make yourself seen (e.g. spread out something large and bright), find shelter with little vegetation, stay low to avoid smoke.
