Ian's destruction of Florida's little barrier islands

New footage shows rescue crews in the air over Sanibel on Florida's southwestern coast.

On their way to save those who are still stuck there in the wake of Hurricane Ian.

Parts of the Sanibel Causeway, the sole land connection to the mainland, were damaged by the Category 4 hurricane. 

Only boats and helicopters may do weekend rescues at this time.

Other barrier islands, including as Matlacha, not far from Sanibel, were also severely impacted by the storm .

The storm surge was so great that it swept away several homes.
