More than a week over Hurricane Ian struck Florida, pictures and videos are emerging that are showing just how damaging the storm was.

One such video is the one below taken in Fort Myers.

The 2:30 video was a time-lapse of a storm surge that slowly started to fill the streets with water. The surge then became so high that a house stationed in the street ended up floating away with the water.

At the end when the water recedes, the video shows just how much debris and damage was left behind.

Through it all, somehow the camera survived!
