Central Florida hurricane damage

I've been in the Orlando area the past couple days and there are a lot of places that are still showing damages from the hurricanes that came through in August and September. There are a lot of houses with blue tarps that signify roof damage. The areas seem to be concentrated with some subdivisions showing damage on maybe 1/3 of the properties yet neighboring areas showing no damage. There are also some areas that experienced some pretty significant tree blowdown. The hurricane damage here is much greater than was experienced in the Ocala area. West of here is Polk county which took heavy damage from three of the four storms that hit the state. I suspect that the damage there is much more than where I have been.
