BONITA SPRINGS, Fla.-- People in Bonita Springs are picking up the pieces and cleaning up after Hurricane Irma.

People in one neighborhood were biking, slogging and even "body-surfing" in the flood waters.

While many say they feel the hardships caused by Irma, some are trying to look on the bright side and say it could have been much worse. 

"I'm thankful that we are all here, I'm thankful our community is out and trying to assess our damage and everybody is super helpful and trying to take care of everybody else around here," said Darby Chew. 

Estimates on insured losses from Hurricane Irma could range from $20 to $65 billion.
