The NOAA website has some aerial photography of post-hurricane Florida. If you zoom-in on the map on https://storms.ngs.noaa.gov/storms/irma/index.html# there are dark areas on the west coast of Florida that can be zoomed-up to a high level of detail. (Unfortunately, they've skipped Pine Island, which is the area that interested me.)

Be warned: those are huge files and there is no real index - just a list of overflight dates and flight sequence numbers. I picked one at random and it took an hour to download (at our best-in-your-area DSL speed of 5 mb/s). It's a 1.8 gb file and has 26 .tif image files from about 15 to 150 mb each. I haven't been able to view one without choking my computer and don't have time to mess with it right now - I have (mild) hurricane aftermath outside my window and pictures of my own. If you need these they might be great. If you're just curious, leave the bandwidth for someone else for now.
