The two photos are from Tacloban in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda in 2013 with winds up 145mph, hence the debris and palm trees missing fronds. Hence the need to improvise the outrigger canoes, which I believe were made from salvaged refrigerators.

Here are some shots of ships that got washed ashore by the storm surge.
