On orders by the city government, families living near the coastline of Manila Bay have been safely evacuated to temporary shelters in anticipation of typhoon Ulysses which is forecast to dump heavy rains that may cause flooding and storm surges.
“Nakapagpalikas na po tayo ng 147 na mga pamilya mula sa Isla Puting Bato, Baseco at Smokey Mountain upang matiyak ang kanilang kaligtasan sa posibleng pananalasa ng Bagyong Ulysses,” Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said. “Sila po ay kasalukuyang nananatili sa ating evacuation centers sa Brgy. 128 Bldg. 3, Bldg. 18, TCI (Tondo Community Initiatives) at Almario Elementary School.”
Moreno also acknowledged the heroic deeds extended by the Manila Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) and the Manila Department of Social Welfare (MDSW) Disaster Management Team for the safe and orderly conduct of evacuation of the families.
