Manila Bay dolomite beach littered with garbage after Typhoon Ulysses

Manila Bay’s dolomite beach was littered with garbage after the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses.

The video report by dzBB’s Jhomar Apresto Saturday on location at the bay showed that garbage could be seen strewn all over the beach. 

Among the trash seen in the vicinity were plastic bottles and pieces of Styrofoam.



There were “batik-batik” or visible spots on the artificial white sand.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources, however, earlier said that the dolomite sand was not swept away by the sea, and that black sand was instead “washed in.” 



The report also mentioned that Roxas Boulevard was also flooded at the height of the typhoon due to the storm surge. – RC, GMA News
