Recently, another huge challenge crossed the surface – the onslaught of two typhoons, Rolly and Ulysses. Undeniably, the latter is the one that brought severe damage to several areas in the country.
Many areas hit by Ulysses were just recovering from Rolly when the tropical storm brought strong rains that triggered flood. Catanduanes faces rockslide and flooding amid its onslaught.
In Marikina City and Rizal, many residents went to their rooftops to get away from the rising water level amid the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses. The flood reached even the second floor of some houses.
Many areas in Marikina that were not flooded during past typhoons were reached by flood amid the onslaught of Ulysses. Mayor Marcy Teodoro sought for the help of the national government as the 50 rubber boats of their local government units were not enough to rescue everyone.
