The Philippines has slowly started recovering from typhoon Rolly and now, it is facing another wrath of nature, typhoon Ulysses.
It has already caused severe flooding in Luzon, specifically in Marikina where water levels have already started covering the ground floor, leaving many families to seek shelter on higher ground.
Some who were not able to evacuate early were led to climbing the roofs of homes.
Fortunately, soldiers were around to make rescue efforts and captured the heroic moment in a video.
It could be seen that strong winds and rising floodwaters were among the things that the rescue team had to contend with and yet, they faced them head-on.
The wrath of Typhoon Ulysses was unexpected. Although Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon were already bracing themselves for what Ulysses could bring, its onslaught became a nightmare for everyone. The Mayor of Marikina was among those praised by netizens for his hands-on approach in the rescue efforts.
The devastation can be seen in various footage. Social media became a rescue hotline. One resident in QC sought the help of rescue teams after being stranded due to the typhoon.
The Philippines has just dealt with Typhoon Rolly and now, it has to face Typhoon Ulysses. So many families have also taken to social media to appeal for help. Twitter is likewise on fire with many organizations seeking donations for the victims.
