A drone recorded the Canal Park community in pristine condition a week before Michael hit.

The storm made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane last Wednesday, leaving the area devastated.

The community is now unrecognizable with one beautiful home after another ruined.

Officials said the city recently saw about a 5 percent uptick in property value before the storm. That may change now as some homeowners get set for a long road to recovery.
