Surveying the destruction

Residents of Navotas, a city in metro Manila, clean up debris and start rebuilding what is left of their shanties following Typhoon Nesat's crossing of Luzon Island in the Philippines. With winds of more than 100 miles per hour, the typhoon put the Philippine's capital under water earlier this week, flooding streets and destroying homes. The typhoon has since hit China and is now on a collision course for Vietnam. (Photo: Dondi Tawatao/Getty Images)

Although 100,000 residents were evacuated from the city, the storm — which is being called the largest typhoon of the year — claimed the lives of 43 people. (Photo: Dondi Tawatao/Getty Images)
