Actress Nadia Montenegro could not help but feel emotional. This is as she shared that she was among those affected by Typhoon Ulysses. (international name: Vamco)
Montenegro said her home in a private village along Marcos Highway in Marikina City was inundated as Ulysses pounded her hometown.
On Friday, she did not hold back her tears as she recounted her painful experience of being a victim of the typhoon.
“We’re all safe, me and the kids, although watak-watak kami (although we are not together),” Montenegro said.
(It all happened so fast. The wall of the creek beside our home collapsed while we were trying to save the cars. We were remiss for a bit, then water from the back of the house came in, then it flooded thigh-high, then it rose by the hip.)
Despite what happened, Montenegro said she was still grateful that her family was safe. She also said the event strengthened her faith.
(If there is one thing I want to share is that what I said in my post. Ulysses may have washed away everything, but I am still grateful because it further strengthened my faith.)
