Floodwaters as far as the eye could see.

That appeared to be the case in inundated Tuguegarao City in Cagayan, based on images taken on Saturday by ABS-CBN News' Chiara Zambrano in the aftermath of Typhoon Ulysses.

 

In an earlier interview, Tuguegarao City Mayor Jefferson Soriano said it was the worse flooding the city experienced in 48 years.

"This is the first time this happened. The last time we had this [kind of flooding] is in 1972. What we are experiencing now is the worst flooding in the city since 1972,” Soriano said.

Zambrano also posted footage of her group driving through Isabela on their way to Cagayan.

One of videos showed residents of Tumauini town, Isabela, evacuated with basic belongings onto the highway. 

Cagayan, one of the worst-hit areas by Ulysses, served as a catch basin of rainwater from the provinces of Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Ifugao, and Kalinga.
