National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) spokesperson Mark Timbal said over 100,000 people in Bicol Region were evacuated before Typhoon Ulysses

The early evacuation was done in hopes that the typhoon will not result to casualties.

“We’re hoping that because of the preemptive evacuation that have been done and people staying in evacuation centers, we would have minimal to zero casualties in the area,” the spokesperson said in an interview.

However, Timbal reported that they are still verifying reports of casualties in Bicol Region, which is still reeling from the effects of Super Typhoon Rolly.

In its 8 a.m. bulletin Thursday morning, state weather bureau PAGASA said Ulysses was last spotted in the vicinity of Cabangan, Zambales and was about to leave the Luzon landmass.
