In a radio interview Marikina City mayor Marcelino Teodoro said roughly 40,000 homes had been either fully or partially submerged in the city, even calling the situation “overwhelming” and the worst since a typhoon back in 2009.

Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal has been lifted in Metro Manila based on the weather bulletin of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) at 5 p.m. on Thursday.

The state weather bureau said as of 4 p.m., Ulysses was located 200 kilometers west of Iba in Zambales. It has maximum sustained winds of 120 kilometers per hour (km/h) near the center and gustiness of up to 150 km/h.

Pagasa said Ulysses is moving westward at 25 km/h as is seen to exit PAR on Friday morning. — With report from Reuters
