Typhoon Ulysses, the 21st tropical cyclone that hit the Philippines in 2020, made landfall just days after Super Typhoon Rolly wreaked havoc in the Bicol region. 

The severe tropical storm intensified into a typhoon endangering the Bicol region, where it closely passed before landfall in Patangunan, Quezon at 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Ulysses further intensified with maximum sustained winds of 155 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 255 km/h as it made its third landfall over General Nakar, Quezon early morning Thursday.

PAGASA issued heavy rainfall warnings over Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, Central Luzon, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, and the eastern portion of Isabela.

 Dumping 356 mm amount of rainfall as recorded from the PAGASA’s Tanay Station from 8 a.m. of November 11 to 8 a.m. of November 12, Ulysses inundated a large swath of lands in Marikina, San Mateo and Rodriguez, Rizal. 

Rescue workers moved to help trapped residents as floodwaters rose, while others were forced to brave chest-deep waters to safety.
