The flooding was a lot worse then I expected. I think the cold front was to blame, all that warm water from the Atlantic as Ian exited the state got pulled in and immediately cooled high in the atmosphere, condensed and came down in buckets N of the track.

Some good news (for me at least) is our mobile home in St James City is still standing! There is some roof damage which will be investigating and attempt to repair in two weeks. The trailer was placed on the lot in 2016 and required being raised 7 feet then tethered down with special hurricane straps. Based on pictures taken by a neighbor none of the windows even broke. We just assumed the whole thing was wiped off the lot or blow away.

Looking at the damage in general the more expensive, newer, well built, raised homes - even those on the barrier islands did fairly well. However the older single story homes didn't stand a chance due to surge. A prime example is Matlacha which had lots of wooden cottages - these were all completely flattened. The damage to the bridges appears (to my untrained eye) be caused when the surge retreated it sucked the sand out from under them causing the structure to collapse under its own weight.
