Wow, what a mess. Glad you and your neighbors are safe. Stuff can be replaced...

Maybe you should have built an ark instead of buying a trailer.

Wow John I am really sorry to read about that. I'm glad you had enough time to get some of the stuff out, have insurance etc. but I feel bad for the long road you have ahead of you getting it all straight again, fixing the house if possible etc.

I'll be praying for you man.

A 500 year flood? Sounds more like: "We had no idea this could happen." The area near me has two flood plains, one about 30 feet above the other. 90% of the houses are built in the lower flood plain. Hate to think what would happen if the second level was ever reached.

Maybe re-build the brewery on a pontoon boat?

Bummer man, sorry to hear about the flood. I hope your insurance takes care of everything! At least the sun is shining! (or at least was in that picture )

I raised a house that I had built 5 feet due to it being below the seasonal high water table. 25,000 gallons a day went out the sump pump line, headed to the ditch. Not being in a Designated Flood Zone I could not get flood insurance. I had the house raised 5 feet by a house mover, with a masonry guy doing 7 courses of blocks and filling the corresponding space in the basement with pea-stone, then he poured new concrete for the floor.

It was $11,500 and then we sued the builder for the problem. His insurance and my Home Owners Warranty eventually coughed up $10,000.

I know a lot about soil surveys and hydrology now.

I'm sorry guys. That just sucks. I know personally about water damage - My Mom had to knock down and completely rebuild her house two years ago. It's no fun at all but very glad to hear you have insurance and were prepared for it.

Tomorrow will be the real kicker- going back in to see what exactly I left behind and what all is ruined. I'm expecting around 15-20k in content damages that aren't covered as I only had flood insurance on the dwelling.

I am at peace with it all at this point... in the end, I will pretty much have a brand new house and thank God I just bought the travel trailer- it already feels so much more like home than if I was just staying at a hotel or something.

Oh, and the deal about the 100 year / 500 year flood... I didn't understand this either until today. What the term "100 year flood" means is that there is a 1% chance this could happen every year. So, by saying "500 year flood", that means there is a .2% chance this could happen...
