Numerous Marikina residents needed to be rescued to escape the rampaging floodwater as Typhoon Ulysses (international name: Vamco) battered the Philippine capital, causing the Marikina river to rise 22 meters as of 11 a.m., according to the city public information office.

The Marikina City Hall also did not escape the flooding, prompting the local government to relocate its operations. City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro said floodwaters are “chest-deep” in most of barangays (villages) in the city.
