Hurricane Damage

Is there a way to view Sanibel Island hurricane damage as of today, 9/29/22? This information would be very valuable to residents unable to return to their homes. Thank you for your help.

It is unlikely that the data available from the DAACs represented here will be applicable to damage assessment in a very short timeframe following the storm. There will likely be data available from Landsat that can be used for storm impact assessment. I am certain there will be both aircraft surveys and high resolution satellite imagery of the area as soon as conditions are favorable for observations.
