Pope Francis offers prayers for victims of massive flash floods in Philippines


- Advertisment -

Pope Francis, through his official Twitter account, offered a prayer to the people of the Philippines suffering from the massive flashflood brought about by the release of a dam and was triggered by a strong typhoon. 

The death toll from Typhoon Ulysses has climbed to 67 as of this writing. Many houses and barangays remain submerged in the northern region. 

“I express my solidarity with the poorest families who are also the most vulnerable to this calamity,” he said after the Angelus prayer in the Vatican. 

In a span of just four weeks, six typhoons have battered the country. 

“I am in prayer to the dear people of the Philippines who are suffering because of the destruction, and especially because of the flooding caused by a strong typhoon. I express my solidarity to the poorest families and those who are doing all they can help them,” he wrote on Twitter.
