Social media becomes emergency helpline at the height of Typhoon ‘Ulysses’

Social media sites on Thursday turned into virtual emergency hotlines as many individuals trapped inside their homes begged to be rescued after Typhoon “Ulysses” dumped heavy rains on Metro Manila and nearby provinces. “Parang awa nyo na po sana may makapansin nito. Kailangan po ng rescue ng pamilya ko sa Montalban (Rizal) (I’m begging and hoping that someone would notice this. My family in Montalban needs to be rescued),” Rowena Bragas said in a Facebook post around 6 a.m. on Thursday “This is urgent!!! Second floor na po ang baha at malakas pa din ang ulan at hangin (The flood has already reached our second floor and the strong winds and heavy rains continue).” Arnel Arevalo, another social media user, added: “Help please! If you know anyone from Montalban, Rizal LGU please let them know that there are still a lot of residents here in Celina Homes 4 who are trapped in their 2nd floor. No sign of rescuers/responder yet. Signal is bad too. Power is out.” Facebook and Twitter users woke up to a number of posts and tweets of people asking for help. These include the viral photos of residents of Rizal province who sought refuge on the roof of their houses after their community was completely submerged in flood waters. Some even had infants in tow. “Sa mga nakakabasa po, patulong. Kailangan po namin ng rescue. Marami pong baby po dito nasa taas na po kami ng bahay, kasama mga kapitbahay po namin. Malapit na po kami abutin, mga 20+ po kami, 10 bata po kasama 5 babies (To anyone who can read this, please help us. We need a rescue team. We have babies with us. We are already on top of our house, with our neighbors. We have 10 children, including five babies here),” Micca Lorreine De Jesus of Montalban town said. The term #RescuePH became trending on Twitter as people seeking assistance used the hashtag to aggregate information of those needing to be rescued. Local government units, including Valenzuela City, used social media to monitor the situation of their constituents, especially those in need of rescue teams. They also resorted to online posting to keep their constituents informed, like what the government of Navotas and Pasay cities did when two vessels ran aground and damaged structures in their areas. As Typhoon “Ulysses,” which reached Signal No. 3, barreled into the National Capital Region, the hotlines of the Armed Forces of the Philippines were overwhelmed with calls, its spokesman, Maj. Gen. Edgard Arevalo, said over DZMM. Despite several evacuation orders enforced a day earlier, many individuals ended up trapped inside their houses. They could no longer find a way out due to rushing waters. In a flood-prone area of Barangay Bagong Silangan in Quezon City, the local government had to deploy at least four rescue boats to fetch the residents who remained in their homes and were trapped, joining the nearly 10,000 individuals who were earlier evacuated. Rescuers, whose operation started as early as midnight, paddled through the waist-deep flood. Many residents, especially of Rizal province and Marikina city, also bore the brunt of the typhoon after losing their houses to the murky flood. Social distancing aimed to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was also hardly observed among the affected individuals as they tried to fit themselves into limited elevated spaces. Some were no longer wearing face masks. The ferocious wind brought by the typhoon toppled trees and torn away scaffolding of several buildings under construction. In Barangay 187 in Caloocan City, a man sustained a leg injury after a tree fell on their house, a certain Cham Oliveros said in a Facebook post......»»
