Residents salvage pieces of their homes after two empty barges rammed into shanties on stilts in a poor community in Manila, Philippines, at the height of typhoon Gener, July 30. Dozens of shanty houses were destroyed as strong winds and waves made the huge barges ram shanties nestled along the coastline of the Manila bay.
