TYPHOON ULYSSES, PHILIPPINES – The typhoon season in South East Asia this year had been relatively quiet until about 2 weeks ago. Since then four typhoons have hit the Philippines. The most recent was typhoon Ulysses which has caused widespread flooding throughout the northern island of Luzon, with some areas seeing the highest floods for decades. The damage has been widespread and there have been many casualties. We understand all the brothers and sisters are safe, but many of them would have been affected in some way by flooding, power outages and strong winds. The pictures below are from Isabela province where there are many brothers and sisters.
