Ulysses, the 21st cyclone storm to hit the country this year, triggered massive flooding in Metro Manila and many other parts of Luzon, particularly the provinces of Cagayan and Isabela.

The typhoon struck areas in Luzon which had barely recovered from the onslaught of Super Typhoon Rolly (Goni), which killed at least 25 people and destroyed thousands of residences.
