Description Front view of two damaged townhouses. The street level of the building on the left is destroyed and the interiors are completely exposed as the doors or windows are missing. There are piles of trash and debris on the floor. Windows on the other floors are also broken or missing. The building on the right is in slightly better shape: all of it's windows seem to be in tact. On the wood board covering a door or window, a handwritten sign reads "FLAT Fix BATTERY CHARGED"
(varying cases per the photo).
