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.
With the strength of the typhoon, it is very much likely that things that are inside the house could either be swept away or end up submerged in water. Many netizens shared the situation of their homes when the typhoon hit and virtually all of their appliances and furniture were damaged by the floodwaters. When the water subsided, it left a lot of mud.
The devastation can be seen in various footage. Social media became a rescue hotline. One resident in Quezon City sought the help of rescue teams after being stranded due to the typhoon.
