Dogs Struggle To Survive After The Onslaught Of Ulysses In Marikina
DOGS STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE – As Typhoon Ulysses rampaged through Marikina, it left heavy rainfall causing intense flooding.
Currently, the Marikina River’s water level had surpassed its peak during Typhoon Ondoy. Previously, Ondoy raised the river’s water level to 21.5 meters. Meanwhile, Typhoon Ulysses rose the water level to 21.9 meters.
Residents were desperately calling for help as they remained stuck on their roofs looking for rescue. According to a resident from Kasiglahan Village, Montalban Rizal, at least 30 people were stuck on rooftops.
However, it wasn’t only humans who were desperately trying to survive the storm’s onslaught. Ulysses also affected hundreds of pets and other animals in Marikina as they struggle to survive the flooding. Here are some photos posted by netizens and rescue teams:
In another photo, you could even see a child desperately trying to save his pet dog from the intense floods. Amidst the wreckage around him, the child never let go of his beloved companion.
In the photos, some dogs were lucky enough to find refuge on rooftops the same way people did. Sadly, due to the damage in communication lines, Marikina Rescue couldn’t be contacted.
