PHOTOS: What Typhoon Glenda Did Around Manila

Glenda is a bitch to trees (and cars, and buildings, and people)

( Glenda didn’t bring in heavy rain, but it did pack strong winds. Early Wednesday morning, July 16, winds of up to 185 kph wreaked havoc, uprooting and toppling trees, blowing away bits from buildings, and pulling away vehicles (some with people in them). The gusts were sto strong that they even clunked together parked Boeing aircrafts.

Here are some photos from social media that detail Glenda’s destructive stay in Manila.
