  • Goni and Vamco AKA Typhoon Ulysses and Rolly
    On 1 November 2020, Super Typhoon Goni, the world’s most powerful tropical cyclone this year thus far, brought torrential rains, violent winds, mudslides, and storm surges to Luzon.
    The typhoon, locally known as Rolly, left extensive destruction and damage in its path, killing at least 25 people, injuring 399, affecting 2 million people in 8 of the country’s 17 regions, as reported by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). The typhoon left an estimated 845,000 people in need of assistance and protection.

    categoey4 Typhoon Vamco (Ulysses) swept through central Luzon on 11 and 12 November, flooding tens of thousands of homes in Manila’s low-lying suburbs while causing floods and landslides in the country’s northern, agricultural provinces of Cagayan and Isabela. The national capital has not seen such devastating flooding since Tropical Storm Ketsana (Ondoy) of 2009 and Cagayan Valley has not experienced such a ferocious deluge in four decades. As of 25 November, Typhoon Vamco has killed 73 people, injured 82, and affected 4.2 million people in almost the same 8 regions battered by Typhoon Goni.
