2020 Typhoon Relief

Typhoon Rolly: At 20:50 UTC (12:50PM) on October 31, 2020 – Rolly made landfall in Bato, Catanduanes at peak intensity as a Category 5 equivalent super typhoon. PAGASA reported 10 minute sustained winds of 220km/h. This made Rolly the strongest recorded tropical cyclone to ever make landfall anywhere in the world! In the wake of the landfall, the storm brought severe flash flooding as well as lahar flow from the nearby Mt Mayon. Homes and agriculture were destroyed and over 390,000  out of 1 million evacuated individuals have been displaced.

Typhoon Ulysses: Near midnight on November 11, 2020 Typhoon Ulysses made landfall as Category 2-equivalent typhoon. The typhoon brought heavy rains in Central Luzon, nearby provinces and Metro Manila that caused severe flooding due to overflowed rivers and overspilling dams forcing the release of large amounts of water. Seven gates of Magat Dam were released to prevent dam failure but caused widespread floods in Cagayan and Isabela.

MTIAS Response: On November 5th, MTIAS responded with an appeal to the membership and friends for help. In a matter of a few days, the Society established a working relationship with the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart Mission Office to help in alleviating the suffering of our people.

The following is the result of the kind response of our members, friends and partners:
