Typhoon Vamco, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Ulysses, was a powerful Category 4-equivalent typhoon that recently caused the worst flooding in Metro Manila since Ketsana in 2009.
The twenty-second named storm and tenth typhoon of the 2020 Pacific typhoon season, Vamco started as a tropical depression northwest of Palau, where it slowly continued its northwest track until it made landfall in Quezon.
The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council in the Philippines reported 69 validated deaths, with another 12 missing, caused by the typhoon.
