I'm all for using the lifecycle prefix,
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Lifecycle_prefix. I agreed that if
there's still remains there use ruined or destroyed, not sure what the
difference is though. Once it's been cleared you could use demolished,
removed or raised, again not sure what the difference is. While damaged is
not documented it seems the perfect fit since there is no other suitable
tag for this on the wiki.

You'd probably need local knowledge to know all this, from the Maxar
imagery you can see houses and trace them not sure how easy it will be to
see destroyed houses though, will need to wait for the post event imagery
to come out.
