Residents salvage housing materials from a community on Manila Bay in Navotas, part of Metro Manila, on Sept. 29, in an area that was destroyed by storm surges unleashed by Typhoon Nesat. Slum dwellers in the Philippine capital rummaged through their flattened homes as villagers on remote farms battled floods, two days after a monster typhoon killed at least 39 people. Authorities warned the death toll from Typhoon Nesat would continue to climb, with dozens of people still missing and more accidents likely as tens of thousands of others struggled with the storm's aftermath.
