Actress Mela Habijan was among those affected by floods as Typhoon Ulysses rammed through Metro Manila, Central Luzon and Calabarzon.

Habijan showed the result of the heavy rainfall that the typhoon brought to Provident Village in Marikina via Twitter. The same village was among those devastated during Typhoon Ondoy in 2012.


“Our house is getting flooded. But my family and I are safe,” the “Manilennials” star wrote this morning.


“As compared to Ondoy, we’re older, more mature, calmer, and more accepting. We can always bounce back! [Wherever] you are, I’m praying for your safety.”

The first photo she shared showed the flood seeping into the gate of their neighbor’s house.

By the next photo — a light-hearted selfie with her father — the flood had nearly reached one floor of the house.

Just past 9 a.m., the flood had already submerged the first floor of houses on the street.

Habijan shared an update this noontime, assuring her friends, “Though stranded, The Habijans are safe. We are also joined by some of our neighbors.”
