After making landfall over Quezon province thrice from Wednesday night to early Thursdsay morning, Ulysses moved towards Central Luzon with its eyewall hitting Metro Manila and nearby areas.

At its peak, Ulysses packed maximum sustained winds of 155 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of up to 255 kph.

Water levels at the Marikina river rose to over 21.5 meters on Thursday morning, which meant that waters overflowed to roads and highways which means that certain areas are inaccessible due to neck-deep flooding.
