The Typhoon Ulysses created damage and flooded parts of Metro Manila and Luzon.
The residence of President Rodrigo Duterte wasn’t spared by Typhoon Ulysses as it flooded a part of the PSG compound. Senator Christopher “Bong” Go shared photos of the President’s residence in Malago at the PSG compound flooded with water as the Pasig River overflows.
“Yung likod po ng kaniyang bahay ay umapaw na rin po ‘yung Pasig River kung saan po siya nagmi-meeting kanina,” Go said.
Duterte was at the Malacanang Golf Clubhouse as he attended an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) virtual summit. Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said Duterte left the ongoing virtual summit so that he could focus on disaster response efforts.
Meanwhile, Go gave assurances that amid the typhoon, he and the President will continue monitoring the rescue and relief efforts of those who are affected by Typhoon Ulysses. He said Duterte ordered all agencies to work to provide assistance to victims of the typhoon.
Go said, “Sa kabila ng matinding pag-ulan at bagyo, patuloy na nakatutok nina Tatay Digong at Kuya Bong Go sa rescue and relief efforts ng gobyerno para sa mga na-stranded at naapektuhan nating mga kababayan. Mahigpit din ang direktiba ng Pangulo sa lahat ng cabinet secretaries na tulungan ang mga nasalanta ng bagyo.”
He also reiterated the importance of “bayanihan” and care to our fellow men. Go said, “Pinapaalalahanan tayong lahat nina Tatay Digong at Kuya Bong na mag-ingat, magbayanihan at magmalasakit tayo sa ating kapwa.”
Many parts of Metro Manila and Luzon continue to experience flooding due to the heavy rains brought on by Typhoon Ulysses.
