Marikina under state of calamity
Marikina City was placed under a state of calamity due to the extent of damage brought by Typhoon Ulysses, Mayor Marcelino Teodoro said in a report by CNN Philippines.
With the state of calamity declaration, relief and rehabilitation efforts of the government and other humanitarian assistance will be fast-tracked. It will also place a control on prices of basic goods in the affected areas.
Marikina City was one of the areas worst hit by the typhoon. All 47 evacuation centers in the city were full, but many families were trapped in their homes after the floodwaters quickly rose in several areas. The water level in Marikina River went as high as 22 meters during the height of the typhoon on Thursday noon; this was only one meter away from the peak water level in the river during Tropical Storm Ondoy, which wreaked havoc in Marikina in 2009.
