M/S of two women standing amongst the rubble using buckets of water to wash a piece of furniture. M/S of an upturned piano lying in the street being hosed with water. L/S of people sorting through a large pile of debris. M/S of a man carrying a chair over fallen tree trunks, he places it with more furniture in the street.
