Many homes along the 120-mile chain of islands are destroyed or are still inaccessible.

Some parts of the Keys are still inaccessible or are blocked off by local authorities. Other islands are in recovery mode, with homeowners surveying unprecedented damage.
"See that yellow line? That's how high the flood got through here," said Dana Fate, whose home sustained heavy damage from Irma. "All this was underwater, all the way up there. I didn't think this was house was going to make it. Any worse, it wouldn't have. It stretched it to the limit, it did."
